Korean A333 near Guam on Aug 26th 2018, squeezed mobile phone emits smoke
Last Update: August 27, 2018 / 21:23:19 GMT/Zulu time
The airline reported it was not a problem with the mobile phone itself, but the fact that the phone became squeezed in the seat. The aircraft became delayed for more than 15 hours in Guam due to the requirement of 7 working fire extinguishers on board. The discharged fire extinguishers could not be replaced locally, therefore a complement of fire extinguishers had to be sent to Guam before the aircraft could depart with 265 passengers on the return flight KE-112 arriving in Seoul with a delay of 15.5 hours.
