Mumbai, Jan 10: A flight from Mumbai to Dubai has been delayed for more than 40 hours after an engine problem on the three-week old plane forced the flight to turn back. Jazeera Airways flight J9427 to Dubai and Kuwait departed at 4.45 am on Tuesday, but turned back shortly after take-off, Jazeera Airways communication manager Fawaz Al-Sirri said.

"The flight was turned back upon a decision by the captain, who suspected technical problems with one of the engines shortly after take-off," Al-Sirri said, adding that the captain is a senior Pilot with more than 18 years experience.

There were 158 passengers on board the flight and some had expressed concern when the plane took off.
