An AirAsia flight headed for Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia was forced to turn back to Perth, Australia on Sunday morning following a severe engine problem.

A number of passengers also said the pilot asked those on the plane to pray on two separate occasions, and shook hands with every passenger after the flight had landed safely.

"Passengers were attended to by our ground staff upon landing and all necessary assistance is being provided", said AirAsia X. "Our engineers are taking the precautionary steps to check the aircraft".

"The safety of our guests is our utmost priority", it said.

Social media comments from passengers reveal they heard a "bang", and the A330 began to "shudder".

"You could tell by the cabin crew's reaction that it was really bad", she said.

"The management applaud the decision made by the flight crew that brought the aircraft to land safely at Perth Airport". "A Passenger on the plane Sophia Nicolas said that the pilot announced over the speaker explaing what was going on finishing with, "'I hope you all say a prayer". It was supposed to be a almost six-hour flight, but 90 minutes into the trip, the pilot was forced to turn back around.

Flight D7237 departed just before 7am WST (11am NZT) on Sunday for Kuala Lumpur with 359 people on board and was about 90 minutes into the flight when the pilot identified what AirAsia says was a technical issue. "After the explosion it started to shake, it started to bounce, but overall the captain did a very good job", Atkinson concluded.

"The only thing I could think of was my family, because it's the first day of Eid celebration", passenger Alla Abdul Rahim told NBC News.

She would not confirm if the plane's engine was affected, responding only that it was a "technical issue". We could see the engine out the window, which was really shaking on the wing.
