from MSNBC:

Smoke was detected in the cabin of a United Airlines flight from Tokyo to Los Angeles on Friday, forcing the plane to make an emergency landing in Tokyo.

Had to be, that's what UA operates on NRT-LAX

If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

When did they swap the 2 772ERs for the 1 744?

Schedule change was done on 09/04 where ua890 becomes a daily 747 service. The likelihood of 2x lax-nrt is very slim in the future. We used to have 2x lax-nrt back in late 90s.

Hmmm, I wonder what it is. An hour after the flight began -- that's when they start the meal prep. Can it be burnt food?  Smile

But it's good to hear nothing bad happened.

I know that UA had 2X dly NRTLAX flights [both 777s] in the summer but that it was planned to return to 1X daily 744 service after the summer. anyway, good that everyone was safe.
