A Hong Kong Airlines Airbus A330-300, registration B-LNP performing flight HX-707 from Hong Kong (China) to Denpasar (Indonesia), was accelerating for takeoff from Hong Kong when the left hand engine (Trent 772) emitted a loud bang prompting the crew to reject takeoff at low speed. The aircraft returned to the apron.

A replacement Airbus A330-200 registration B-LNC reached Denpasar with a delay of 3 hours.

A passenger reported there was a loud noise (bang) from the left hand side a few seconds after the engines spooled up and reached full thrust. The crew immediately applied brakes and returned the aircraft to the apron.
