Last Update: January 2, 2013 / 20:24:02 GMT/Zulu time
The Canadian TSB reported the crew intended to re-align the IRSs at Anchorage and continue the flight. Maintenance however determined the switches were worn and could be moved with little resistance/force. The Inertial Reference Mode Panel was replaced. A fleetwide inspection is under way and flight crew were made aware by flight operations.
The aircraft reached Seoul with a delay of 2.5 hours.
