ANZ AT72 near Hamilton on Nov 28th 2023, smell of gas on board
Last Update: November 28, 2023 / 19:51:06 GMT/Zulu time
The airline reported the smell of gas was detected by both cabin crew and the flight crew. The passengers disembarked normally, baggage and aircraft were assessed.
A passenger reported he smelt gas prior to departure, the departure was therefore delayed while the baggage was unloaded and maintenance looked for the source, however, they were told the source was not detectable and the smell had dissipated, hence the aircraft departed, then the smell apparently returned.
The aircraft is still on the ground in Hamilton about 22 hours after landing.
