A United Continental Holdings Inc. (UAL) flight to Shanghai landed in Canada and then returned to New York’s Newark airport because of a toilet fault.
The plane spent a couple of hours on the ground before turning back, said Naoko Munakata, a Tokyo-based employee at Hill & Knowlton, the PR agency that represents United in Japan. The service will take off again from Newark at 5:30 a.m. today, she said by e-mail.
The flight left Newark at 11:06 a.m. yesterday before diverting to Goose Bay Airport, according to information on United’s Website.
