A United Airlines Flight from Chicago to Orange County made a sudden emergency landing on Sunday evening.
“The flight attendant was doing drink service, and she was right about to get to our row. She looked back, and all I saw was her face. Just sheer terror on her face.”
The flight 1463 from Chicago to Orange County, had an emergency that couldn’t wait. One passenger said:
“Initially (the flight attendant) said, ‘We’re going down. We don’t know where, but somewhere,’
That’s a scary thought. A slide deployed in the Boeing 737-700 near the rear of the plane which caused the emergency landing.
Speaking of SNAFU’s, United appears to of had an issue with providing breakfast to the folks who stayed over night waiting for the replacement flight.
United representatives provided complimentary bagels and coffee to the passengers of Flight 2076, and after a brief bagel logistical snafu – “You think they’d rather have bagels or be back to Orange County on time?” one United representative said to another – the plane was in the air.
