A United Airlines flight has landed safely at Sydney Airport after issuing a mayday call due to low fuel reserves, authorities have said.
Flight UA839, carrying 194 people, had been on a 15-hour flight to the city from Los Angeles.
Police said they activated a "full emergency response" shortly before the jet landed at 06:36 local time on Thursday (20:36 Wednesday GMT).
United Airlines called it a mechanical issue and said all on board were safe.
"The aircraft taxied to the gate and all customers disembarked normally," the airline said in a statement.
The pilot of the 787-900 Dreamliner had earlier issued a mayday call due to low fuel levels, said Airservices Australia, the nation's aviation navigation authority.
