Flight Diverted Due to Dizziness

DENVER (AP) - A United Airlines flight from Chicago to Las Vegas was diverted to Denver on Saturday after a group of flight attendants complained of being dizzy and lightheaded.

A United spokesman said five flight attendants were taken to University Hospital, but a hospital spokeswoman said six patients were treated and released.

None of the 297 passengers or pilots reported any symptoms and no problems were found with the plane, the spokesman said. The cause of the dizziness was not known.

After the plane landed in Denver, the attendants were replaced by another group. Flight 1047 continued to Las Vegas and arrived more than two hours behind schedule.

United has been in contract negotiations with its pilots, but the airline spokesman said Saturday's problems did not appear to be related to any labor dispute.

Another United plane, Flight 1227, which took off from Dulles International Airport in Washington, landed at Lambert Airport in St. Louis at about 12:30 p.m. CDT after pilots reported an engine problem.

The plane landed safely and all 327 people on board were unharmed.

The STL aircraft is N159UA, or ship 8259 as it is known. Here's the scoop: #3 engine lost oil pressure. It was shut down when it reached 20psi. The Aircraft diverted to STL and landed without incident. This aircraft was going to be ferried STL-SFO on three engines. As it was being prepared for the ferry flight, an engine runup was preformed. The runup resulted in #1 engine having a compressor stall, and #4 engine exceeding EGT limits. A fire began in the tailpipe of #4 engine. As a result, both fire bottles were blown in #4 engine.
All in all, ship 8259 has seen better days
