An investigation is underway after a Malaysia Airlines flight that was meant to be en route to Kuala Lumpur took an unusual turn of direction towards Melbourne.
 
Flight MH132 left Auckland Airport for Kuala Lumpur at 2am on Boxing Day.
 
But the pilot noticed the plane was not going in the right direction after a few minutes into the flight.
 
Eight minutes after the plane took off, the pilot called air traffic controllers in Auckland to see why the flight was not flying towards Malaysia and then steered the plane towards northwest to the Malaysian capital.
 
Passengers were not told about the mix-up.
