MAS flight from KL to London forced to double back, causing 24-hour delay | Malaysia | Malay Mail Online


The linked news article indicates return to base due to problems with its avionics systems.

A Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight from Kuala Lumpur to London was forced to return to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) last night due to technical problems with its avionics system, the national carrier said today. The MH002 flight on an Airbus A380-800 plane had departed at 11.55pm yesterday carrying 369 passengers with 26 flight and cabin crew onboard but was forced to return to its Sepang base several hours after departure. It landed safely at the KLIA at 3.35am.
