The aircraft drifted down to FL280 and continued to Japan but diverted to closer Tokyo's Narita Airport, where the aircraft landed safely on runway 34L about 2 hours later.

A passenger reported there was a gurgling sound and the left hand engine stopped, the aircraft turned left then right. The captain subsequently announced the left hand engine had failed and they were flying on the right hand engine only, they would divert to Narita since it was closer. After landing fire engines positioned next to the left hand engine, maintenance engineers opened the engine cover.
