Fuel leak from an American Airlines airplane parked at the gate for boarding at Philadelphia International Airport.

The flight #481  bound for Los Angeles was delayed for more than four hours due to the incident and finally took off at 5.46 pm.

A passenger tweeted “The fuel cap is just ¿ dangling ? Everyone is gathered around the window like it’s a show.”

“A mechanical issue was encountered during the fueling process, which resulted in a minor fuel spill at the gate,” the airline said in a statement.
