A double-decker Qantas Airways flight bound for Australia sprung a leak and was forced to return to Los Angeles late on Tuesday local time, airline officials and passengers on the flight said.

The flight to Melbourne landed safely again at Los Angeles International Airport about an hour after take-off.

Qantas said there were no safety concerns with the leak and that the captain decided to turn the Airbus A380 around in the interest of passenger comfort.
