Air Malta's flight to Manchester returns to Malta IAP due to abnormal water condensation in a window

An Air Malta Airbus A319-100 (9H-AEG), performing flight KM-146 from Malta (Malta) to Mancheste (UK), was en route at FL360 about 60-nm northeast of Cagliari (Italy) when the crew decided to return to Malta reporting a cracked window. The aircraft landed safely back in Malta about one hour later. The airline reported no cracks were found at the window. However, condensation water above usual levels was found between the panels of the window which caused the impression of a cracked window. (Source: avherald.com, 16-Mar-2015)
