Flight Alerts that offers information about commercial air transport including diversions and emergencies mentioned this morning in a tweet that MH1 had made an abrupt U-turn in a airspace above Belgium. It also added an update was due to the fact that there was no water in the lavatories of the airplane.
It also said that the Airbus A380 had jettisoned its fuel before descending at the Heathrow Airport in London.
One of the news media agencies had reported that Malaysia Airlines had asserted that the aircraft had returned an hour into the approximately 12-hour journey due to an issue with the ‘water supply system’ on board the flight.
It had been quoted later than the national carrier company mentioned that engineers were on standby to rectify the problem as soon as the airplane made a landing.
Later Malaysia Airlines said that a new departure time would be determined later because of an airport curfew and flight duty period constraints. And the affected passengers would be offered with accommodation in hotels close to the airport.
In a statement it mentioned that the airline apologizes for disrupting the travel plans of the passengers and would assist with the re-booking of flights with onwards connections from Kuala Lumpur.
