LOS ANGELES (AP) — Qantas Airways says a water leak aboard a flight bound for Australia has forced the plane to return to Los Angeles.

The company says in a statement that the flight bound for Melbourne on Tuesday night returned to Los Angeles International Airport about an hour after takeoff.

Qantas says there were no safety concerns with the leak and that the captain decided to turn the plane around in the interest of passenger comfort. There was no immediate word on the type of plane involved.

LAX spokeswoman Amanda Parsons tells The Associated Press the 11:40 p.m. flight was carrying about 400 passengers.

Qantas says the plane's crew did all it could to help customers and that the issue with the plane was being addressed by its engineers.

The company says it is working to determine the cause of the leak.
