Lufthansa MD11 near Frankfurt on Sep 22nd 2018, fuel system problems
Last Update: September 22, 2018 / 20:16:43 GMT/Zulu time
The airport reported the crew made a precautionary, not an emergency landing advising of a problem with the fuel supply systems. It is unclear whether sufficient fuel had been loaded in Los Angeles.
The airline reported the crew received a warning indication about one hour prior to landing of a possible problem in one of the multiple fuel supply lines. The crew declared emergency to receive priority, emergency services were therefore called out for the landing. The aircraft landed safely and taxied to the parking position.
According to information The Aviation Herald received the aircraft had still 18 tons of fuel (about 2.5 hours endurance) on board when the problems started near London.
