Hi All

Any info on what happened to the QF8 out of DFW today?

A friend has just contacted me after 5 hours into the flight they landed at LAX with Fire Trucks around the aircraft and have been transported to hotels. Did not get much of an explaination from crew about it by the sounds of his questions

That's happened a few times over the last 6 months from memory.
