BREAKING: UNITED AIRLINES BARRED FROM RUSSIAN AIRSPACE ‘FOR DIPLOMATIC REASONS,’ PILOT ANNOUNCES

[4/12/17]  A United Airlines flight from San Francisco to Shanghai, China was diverted from flying over Russian airspace for “diplomatic reasons” early Wednesday morning, passengers on the flight say.

Those diplomatic concerns forced the flight to refuel at Tokyo’s Narita airport, the flight’s captain told passengers, several of whom posted about it on social media.

One passenger named Andy Brown wrote on Facebook that the airplane almost ran out of fuel before landing at Narita.

“Then they backed into something at Tokyo airport broke something on the plane!” he added.

“United probably will not tell the public about this.”

Another passenger posted about the delay.
