FRANKFURT (AP) - German airline Lufthansa says one of its New York-bound flights has returned to Germany amid reports it was leaking oil from one of its engines.

Deutsche Lufthansa AG says the plane, flight LH400, which departed from Frankfurt on Saturday, experienced the problem over Greenland and the captain decided to return to Frankfurt, where the plane landed without problem.

The passengers and crew debarked safely and were waiting for a
replacement flight that was scheduled to leave late Saturday night.

Ann Curry, an NBC television reporter, was on-board and provided public "tweets" - brief, instant internet updates on the Twitter networking site - on the plane's turnaround and landing.
