Plane Bound For Perth 'Too Heavy' For Take-Off

Passengers on a Perth-bound Qantas flight were told to get on another plane after the one they were on was deemed too heavy for take-off.

Up to 40 passengers were put onto a different service in Sydney yesterday, some say there were plenty of empty seats on the aircraft.

Qantas says the flight was delayed due to a technical issue with the fuel pump which affected the plane's weight and balance.

The passengers who had to take the later flight only arrived five minutes after their original flight.
