Did i understand the beginning right and the KLM671 arrived too early at the oceanic entry point?

What is interesting though why a dogleg / delay vector wasn't sufficient to ensure separation.

Yes, according to Shannon Control it appeared that the KLM flight was arriving too early at the waypoint.  There apparantly was not enough separation between them and the aircraft in front of them (4 minutes between the two was needed).  The KLM flight seemed to be disputing this.  It sounded like he thought there was enough separation and took exception to what Shannon was telling them.  You may have noticed that when Shannon cleared them to FL390, it was a second KLM pilot that answered...

BTW, the Shannon Control feed has a number of frequencies on it so it's very possible that some relevant portions of the conversation were missed.  I'm just wondering why that pilot put up such a fuss...
