A United Airlines Boeing 787 Dreamliner flying from London to Houston diverted to Newark Airport on Thursday when pilots detected an oil issue.

United Flight 125, with 233 people on board, landed safely at Newark at 2:10 PM.

There were no injuries reported.

Passengers were put on a later 767 flight to Houston.

Boeing says this incident was not related to a Boeing 787 making an emergency landing at Seattle, also due to an oil issue.

    It wasn’t a airframe or engine manufacturers issue, it was a mx technician error. First hand knowledge.
