‘”United flight 94 from Houston to Denver returned to Houston Sunday due to a brake indicator issue,” the US carrier said.
“Following standard operating procedures, as a precautionary measure, the flight landed in emergency status. The aircraft landed safely at 11:58 am CT (around 10:30 pm on Sunday) and our maintenance team is conducting a review of the aircraft,” the statement continued.
A Boeing spokeswoman said the problem with the braking system forced the plane “back to base,” without giving details of the malfunction or how long it might take to repair it.’
There were no injuries reported.
On June 19th, a United Airlines Boeing 787 Dreamliner flying from Denver to Tokyo diverted to Seattle-Tacoma Airport due to an engine oil issue and on June 21st a United 787 flying from London to Houston diverted to Newark Airport on when pilots detected another oil issue, although Boeing has said those two issues were not related.
