Media hysteria and Oz nanny-state reaction.

Numerous places to land in the last three or four hours prior to Sydney on that route. Mayday call was a precaution.

Thanks for the link with some cover-up as to the real situation. :^o

( Boeing cover-up or United not fueling up correctly ? )

Must have been a very costly exercise.

I think it landed at its intended destination, but someone still had some explaining to do.
