Depressurised after takeoff
A Qantas jet flying from New Zealand to Australia has been forced to turn around after the cabin started to lose air pressure.

The incident involved a Boeing 737-400 flying out of Auckland en route to Brisbane.

In a statement, Qantas says the aircraft developed a 'subtle pressurisation problem' at 25,000 feet. It says while the cabin was depressurising at a controlled rate it wasn't noticeable to passengers, and there was never any imminent threat to passengers, the crew or the aircraft.

The aircraft landed and all 91 passengers disembarked safely, and the plane is now being examined by engineers.
