HAL3 Returns To LAX

Various news sources are reporting the return to LAX of HAL3 bound for HNL. The A330-243, N395HA "‘A‘a" (msn 1496), left late due to a fuel leak and spill, then about one hour into the flight the crew made the decision to return to LAX. Earlier reports were incorrect about addional fuel being dumped to lower landing weight but the aircraft did circle to burn fuel.

Emergency crews were standing by as the plane made a safe, uneventful landing on Runway 25R. There were 300 passengers and crew aboard. The issue was repaired, and the flight left for HNL.
