Cathay Pacific A330 Landing Gear Issue

A Cathay Pacific Airbus A330-300, registration B-LAQ performing flight CX-332 from Hong Kong to Beijing (China), was in the initial climb out of Hong Kong’s runway 07R when the crew requested to stop climb at 5000 feet reporting an “operational problem with the landing gear”. The aircraft entered a hold while the crew worked the related checklists and the airport switched runways, the aircraft subsequently landed safely on runway 25R about 35 minutes after departure.

The aircraft remained on the ground for about 4.5 hours, then was able to depart again and reached Beijing with a delay of 5 hours.
