Flt.Lt.

The Bangkok-bound flight was carrying 133 passengers, three pilots, and 16 cabin crew members.

In maintaining the highest safety standards in flight operation, the pilot landed the aircraft at Osaka'a Kansai International Airport for a system check, while THAI staff escorted and attended to passengers' comfort in the rest area of the airport. After the electrical system check, the aircraft was permitted to depart Kansai International Airport at 15.32 hours (local time), with new arrival time at Suvarnabhumi Airport at 20:15 hours.
