Plane flying from Kuala Lumpur to Tokyo has to turn back
A Malaysia Airlines aircraft flying from Kuala Lumpur to Tokyo had to turn back on Saturday because of cabin pressure problems. In the latest setback for the troubled airline, Flight MH70, operated with a Boeing 777-200, made the U-turn about an hour into its journey.
“It was not able to maintain the right pressure differential for the comfort of the passengers,” explained Azharuddin Abdul Rahman, chief of the country’s civil aviation department. “It is not a major problem.”
Back in the Malaysian capital, the passengers were put on another flight and departed a few hours later.
