Does anyone know why the UA 967 from Rome to IAD has just landed in Geneva?
According to UA website the aircraft should take off from GVA one hour after landing.

Sounds likely to be a medical diversion if they can confidently predict they will be back in the air only 1 hr later.

Aircraft Reliability is the reason, no additional information. It is on Decision out of GVA, which means they will have an update at 1500L, not a departure time.

Just found an article about this :

It's in French only. The journalist writes that the flight was en route to Chicago, which is wrong.
Aircraft had mechanical problem. UA website still displays that flight will depart ontime at 1.30 (it's now almost 3.00).

I checked over on Flightaware, but they seem totally confused over the flight's issues.

Btw, UA 967 does display a tag-on, but it's IAD-LAX. And the United.com web site still says "Schedule change due to aircraft servicing."

967 will be overnight in GVA, scheduled for a 0900L departure on Dec. 24th. There is an aircraft change in IAD, the IAD-LAX departed IAD :01E.
