Last Update: October 4, 2013 / 13:21:00 GMT/Zulu time
A passenger reported that about 15 minutes after becoming airborne there was a pronounced deceleration of the aircraft, the aircraft began to descend and rolled right for a longer than usual turn obviously to turn back to Kuala Lumpur, there were no unusual noises or other unusual sensual perceptions at the time. A few minutes later the flight crew announced that they had some technical problem and were returning to Subang. The aircraft landed safely about 10 minutes after the announcement and taxied to the apron. Maintenance began to work on the left hand engine even before passengers had started disembarking. Upon exiting the aircraft the passenger noticed a smell of hot/burning oil and overheard discussions between the engineers talking about engine oil. They were taken to another aircraft and reached Alor Setar with delay.
