Chennai: More than 190 passengers of a Kuala Lumpur-bound Malaysian Airlines flight were asked to disembark here shortly before take-off following a technical problem.
All the 193 passengers had boarded the flight, scheduled to leave at 12.40 am, when the pilot noticed the problem, airport sources said.
The passengers were brought back to the terminal about an hour later and accommodated in hotels, they said, adding the flight was expected to leave later in the day.
