Crew cleared seats near the affected engine and turned the flight back. -- AirlineRatings.com editor Geoffrey Thomas said investigators would be looking at whether the acoustic paneling of the engine had become detached, citing a similar incident in mid-May involving an Egypt Air A330 .He said the panel might have come back and been sucked into the engine.China Eastern said all passengers would be placed on flights departing Australia Monday.
