I wonder if they have a replacement aircraft on the way?

The UA flight status page shows that it's cancelled due to "engine maintenance". I wonder if the passengers are being re-accommodated on alternate flights (instead of a replacement aircraft being used for this flight).

FI doesn't interline, does it? I wouldn't bet that both UA's KEF-EWR and DL's KEF-JFK are just half-booked tomorrow, as we are in the end of August.

Is United going to go all Sun Country on passengers and just leave them there?! https://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/f ... 523949002/

UA has scheduled an extra section KEF-EWR tomorrow at 10:10 AM as UA2826.

it will operate with the aircraft flying UA138 tonight.

UA139 tomorrow is currently scheduled with the aircraft that returned to KEF today.

I think most airlines know not to do that now. Especially because EU passenger protections might kick in in this case and that would be...bad.

How’d you make the jump from a UA air return to correlating to to a story of a third tier LCC stranding passengerS over a year ago.

Whimps. Other airlines care for their pax and continue to destination on the remaining engine.

I suppose that might explain the A124 loading up at IAD and flying to KEF early this morning.

Or continue on with 3 and then declare an emergency and land short on fumes (BA).
