Customers exited the plane normally, United said, adding that it was “working with our customers to provide flight options for them on Friday.”

There were 273 passengers and a dozen crew members on board.

This follows several other recent flight incidents involving United, including an accident on March 7 when a a tire fell off a United Airlines plane taking off from San Francisco airport, an emergency landing another flight to Los Angeles due to hydraulic problems the next day, and a panel flies away an aging United Boeing 737.

CBS News reported last week that the Federal Aviation Administration had been evaluate a possible temporary action against United, including some potential restrictions on its ability to add new routes or planes.

In a letter to employees on March 22, Sasha Johnson, United’s vice president of corporate safety, appeared to acknowledge that temporary FAA action was coming.

“Over the coming weeks, we will begin to see a greater presence from the FAA in our operations as they begin to review some of our work processes, manuals and facilities,” Johnson wrote. “As part of this effort, the FAA will also suspend various certification activities for a period of time. These activities will differ depending on the task force and we will learn more from the FAA about this soon.”
