I kind of doubt that. If you think the plane is on fire you aren't going to waste time flying around to dump fuel, you need to get on the ground ASAP.

The 77L is slowing down and descending, hopefully about to commence its final approach back into SYD.

That's a lot different than a "fire that could not be extinguished", as reported by the news. Wow. Although good to here that everything is alright.

Wow did the Daily Telegraph blow this story up. Sydney Morning Herald has it more accurately:

"Ms Foster said smoke was detected coming from an oven in the aircraft's galley.

Fire and Rescue NSW said it was a "minor incident" and emergency crews were not required at the airport."

"

Shame on the Telegraph .. I literally just got out of bed to read about a "plane on fire." Thankfully nothing major at all.

What terrible reporting!

This brings back terrible memories of the AC DC-9 that caught on fire and people died.

Isn´t it normal procedure when fire or smoke is coming from an oven in the galley to disconnect the electronic feed to the oven and then shut it so it burns itself out? How serious could it have been that it required a fully loaded 777 (I assume) to return to the airport?

Or maybe AC learned from that DC-9 incident and has a zero tolerance policy regarding any type of fire in the cabin?

I just think it was a rather drastic measure to return to SYD just because of an oven fire.

Because nobody knows right now what really happened we cannot say what should or should not have happened.

Besided, nobody on here knows AC policy/checklist for the pilots to follow.

I'm commenting on the news reporting that the aircraft "was on fire".....rather than an incident in the galley!

Smoke anywhere in an airplane the plane needs to land. Not everywhere has fire detection and/or surpression. I think it would be standard procedure to land the plane. Obviously they knew it was not a serious emergency but NO pilot is going to doing an ETOPS trans Pacific flight after a report of smoke in the cabin.

Did they hack a passenger's phone to get the information?  

Glad to hear of the safe landing!
