Malaysia A333 over Tasman Sea on Dec 25th 2015, crew, dispatch and ATC out of sync
Last Update: December 27, 2015 / 22:22:28 GMT/Zulu time
The airline confirmed that the aircraft tracked to Kuala Lumpur on a slightly different route that the crew did not expect. The route was selected due to winds at cruise level. An internal safety investigation has been opened however.
On Dec 27th 2015 the airline added that the flight was given the latest flight plan by the airline's dispatch, however, air traffic control inadvertently received an earlier flight plan. "Both routes were following an approved flight path and the aircraft had enough fuel for both routes. The safety of both passengers and crew were never compromised at any time. Malaysia Airlines is currently conducting its investigation in the flight plan submission."
