United_Fan: I agree, doesn't help matters any, and USA Today reported on a 767 from LAX-JFK that diverted to ROC (or was it SYR?) due to an oil light indicator and engine smoking. They landed, went to a remote part of the airfield, and then there was a fire that was quickly put out. None of the pax were injured.
Given all that, that's pretty pale compared to the DL 763 that diverted to LGW for hydraulics problems this morning (there's another thread going on that)
If you want some good news on UAL, head to their website and check out the August operating results!

From the Washington Post:
A United Airlines passenger jet that landed at Reagan National Airport was stuck on the main runway with front wheel problems for more than five hours today, closing the runway and delaying and diverting some flights until the plane could be towed away about 4:40 p.m., an airport official said. Most flights were still getting into and out of the airport by using a second runway, but some flights were delayed and two were diverted to Dulles International Airport, said Tom Sullivan, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, which operates National and Dulles.
Sullivan said the second runway that planes were using is 1,600 feet shorter, but "it can handle anything that flies in and out of here."
United Flight 604 from Chicago's O'Hare International Airport landed safely at about 11 a.m. but had problems with its nose gear, Sullivan said. No injuries were reported.
Airport and airline officials said about 57 passengers and crew left the plane about 11:30 a.m. via moveable stairs and were driven to the terminal in buses.
Sullivan said he did not know the exact nature of the nose gear problems that stranded the plane on the runway.
United spokeswoman Chris Nardella said the Boeing 737's nose gear went down for landing and did not collapse on touchdown. The airline was investigating the incident, Nardella said.
