United pilot to passengers: We're turning around because our plane's too big

    The text alert from United Airlines sounded ominous.機票



    "Your 2:13 p.m. United flight to Chattanooga is delayed because of
    unforeseen circumstances,'' it said. "This is an unusual situation and
    we're working hard to solve it. We value your time and we're sorry for
    the inconvenience.''



    And the "situation" wasn't news to the 50 passengers on Flight 5277
    on Oct. 16. They received the alert after the problem arose, after their
    Chicago-to-Chattanooga flight returned to O'Hare International Airport
    mid-flight.



    Vince Fallon, who was traveling from Omaha to Chattanooga via
    Chicago for a business meeting, said the United Express flight, a daily
    flight operated by partner SkyWest Airlines, started out without any
    major issues.



    Fallon and another passenger on the plane said there was a
    last-minute aircraft swap, from one type of regional jet to another due
    to a mechanical issue, which changed their seat assignments but didn't
    delay the flight. Flight tracker FlightAware says the plane left the
    gate at 2:17 p.m. local time, just a few minutes behind schedule, and
    took off at 2:45 p.m. It was due to land in Chattanooga less than two
    hours later, at 5 p.m. local time.
