United B772 over Atlantic on Jul 3rd 2022, leak in galley
Last Update: July 7, 2022 / 10:57:53 GMT/Zulu time
The remainder of the flight was cancelled, the passengers were rebooked onto other flights.
A passenger reported they noticed the aircraft had turned around, but there was no announcement. After querying the flight attendants the pilots finally made an announcement stating there was a water leak in the galley and they were diverting to Heathrow to have it fixed. After landing in Heathrow maintenance engineers entered the aircraft and accessed panels high up in the galley, shortly afterwards an announcement came stating that the issue wasn't easily solvable, the passengers were asked to disembark. A flight attendant subsequently suggested it may have been a hydraulic leak.
