A KLM Boeing 777-300, registration PH-BVA performing flight KL-836 from Singapore (Singapore) to Amsterdam (Netherlands), was enroute at FL280 about 110nm southsouthwest of Bangkok (Thailand) when the crew told passengers they had received a cargo fire indication, the fire suppression system had been activated and they needed to divert to Bangkok, subsequently stating the fire indication had extinguished. The aircraft dumped fuel and landed safely in Bangkok about 30 minutes after the fire indication. Attending emergency services found no trace of fire, heat or smoke.

The passengers were taken to hotels and reported they were told the repair of the fire suppression system would take until next day.

The airline apologized to passengers in written stating the flight (that had departed Denpasar for Singapore on Apr 1st 2014 and departed Singapore at 00:30L on Apr 2nd) had to be diverted to Bangkok as a safety precaution because of a fire warning in a hold. The flight could not be continued due to crew duty time limitation.

The incident aircraft was able to continue the flight just after midnight local time, about 21 hours after landing, and is estimated to reach Amsterdam with a total delay of 22 hours.
