It is N194UA and was operating as 1886/1Dec FRU-HHN (Franklfurt Hahn). United.com shows it returned to the gate at FRU 2.5 hours after push.
Flight 1886 now sked FRU-HHN a day late 12/2, then shows sked HHN-GTB.
GTB -Genting, Malaysia - a small area near Kuala Lumpur and I can't find the airport on Google Earth and World Airport Codes show it on another island, but there is no airport at the GPS coordianates. Think that's a typo?

Hmm, I'm a bit surprised at this. While the runway is pretty rough, the taxiways are plenty wide and the markings are fine. I've often been on the ramp in FRU, and have envied UA, DL, and all the other big boys. They've got the range for non-stop back to Europe, whereas we have to stop in TBS if we're full. The tech stop is somewhat softened, though, by the ground handler always giving us a case of Georgian wine.

UA 1886 did operate FRU-HHN-GTB 24 hours late without incident after departing FRU. I don't know if we'll find out exactly what happened, but my guess is after the aircraft came back to the gate in FRU, the crew was timed out for the day, thus the 24 hour delay.
