MAS flight delayed due to fuel leakage.
A Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight was delayed for more than an hour yesterday (17 December) due to fuel leakage.
The Boeing 737 aircraft was preparing to take off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport for Alor Star with about 140 passengers, when ground crew discovered minor fuel leakage. Those passengers who had already boarded the aircraft were forced to disembark while MAS engineering staff examined the aircraft.
The passengers were transferred to a second Boeing 737 aircraft to fly to Alor Star, The Associated Press reported.
