Explanation: If after an airplane takes off and is airborne, they suffer a problem, whether it is mechanical or with a passenger, the captain makes the final decision whether to continue on to their next destination or to return to the airport. That is an air return.
If they are still on the ground, maybe in route to or at the end of the runway awaiting clearance for takeoff, and they realize there is a problem, again mechanical or with a passenger, and again the decision is up to the captain's discretion whether to proceed with takeoff or to abort and return to the terminal gate.
