CHENNAI: An Abu Dhabi-bound Malaysian Airlines flight made an unscheduled emergency landing at the Chennai international airport here on Tuesday morning as a snag was noticed in one of the engines, airport sources said.

All the 120 passengers of the Airbus were safe, the sources said.

Fire brigade, and other emergency services were kept ready during the landing.

The pilots detected the fault during the course of the flight.

I read it was bound for DXB (MH090), with a 777. It's good to see no one was hurt.

Only 120 passengers on a B777  Sad
