QANTAS has apologised to passengers left stranded at Los Angeles airport overnight after a plane cooling system malfunction.
The apology comes after frustrated passengers were left to try to get some sleep on the floor of the airport as the airline raced to try to fix the problem.
The plane was expected to eventually take off 23 hours later than its scheduled departure.
The flight, QF108, bound for Sydney, was scheduled to take off at 11.50pm local time, but a technical issue with the aircraft’s on-board cooling system prevented the flight departing.
