You can see they did a fair bit of holding to burn off fuel before landing. http://flightaware.com/live/flight/DAL99/history/20130807/0850Z/LFPG/KDTW

They've long since moved on from Amsterdam, and are nearly passing Maine, and well on their way to Detroit.

Wondering why Amsterdam and not London or Manchester!

Amsterdam is a SkyTeam hub (KLM). Delta has many flights into and out of Amsterdam. Delta has many SkyTeam partners also flying into Amsterdam.
So:
1) Delta or a Delta partner will have the mechanical expertise to fix the problem. or
2) Delta would more easily be able to accomadate passengers on Delta or Delta partner flights, in the event the flight needs to be cancelled for mx reasons.
