What: Primera Air Boeing 737-700 en route from Greece to Dublin
Where: Dublin
When: Aug 14th 2009
Who: 148 passengers and 6 crew
Why: High fuel consumption observed during the flight appeared to point to a fuel leak, leading to an emergency landing in Dublin. The “minor” leak that was discovered in the left engine was repaired.

Maintenance saves the day, again…
