A KLM Boeing 777-200, registration PH-BQL performing flight KL-876 from Bangkok (Thailand) to Amsterdam (Netherlands) with 286 passengers and 12 crew, was enroute at FL340 about 540nm northeast of Dubai (United Arab Emirates) in Iranian Airspace, when the crew drifted the aircraft down to FL200 due to an engine (GE90) failure and shut down. The aircraft set course to Dubai where the aircraft landed without further incident about 105 minutes after leaving FL340.

Contradicting information from Dubai, that the engine had failed and was shut down, the airline reported on May 30th 2023: "the engine continued to run in idle during approach and landing."
