Oz jet forced to divert to Adelaide after burning through fuel

A spokesman of the Australian national airliner Qantas said the A380 from Singapore made the unexpected pit stop around 5 am (local time), media reports said.

He said the low fuel supply was not the result of a leak.
"Engineers have inspected the aircraft on ground this morning in Adelaide and found there were no technical issues," the spokesman said, adding "the flight crew found they had burnt through the fuel supplies quicker than expected."

"It was not an emergency landing," he said.
The jet was expected to arrive here about 7.30am (local time), a ABC report said.
