SAN FRANCISCO—On Tuesday, September 25 at 1:25 a.m. San Francisco International Airport asked passengers aboard Volaris Flight 927 bound for Mexico City to deplane due to a fuel spill from the Airbus A320.
The first fuel spill occurred at 1:10 a.m. and was cleaned up by 2:00 a.m. at this point passengers were waiting to board the plane again Airport Duty Manager, Chris Morgan told San Francisco News.
A second fuel spill transpired at 2:35 a.m. with a total of 10-20 gallons of fuel spilled from the right wing Morgan told San Francisco News. Volaris Airlines made the decision to cancel Flight 927 at 4:45 a.m.
