Guam - In less than a week another United Airlines flight from Hawaii is experiencing a delay. Island residents waiting for a family or friend arriving on this evening’s flight from Honolulu should expect an hour and a half delay. United Corporate Communications issued the following statement:

“United Airlines flight UA201 from Honolulu to Guam on July 15, 2014, a Boeing 777-200 aircraft with 343 customers on board, was delayed following a mechanical issue.  The aircraft departed Honolulu on July 15 at 4:15 p.m. and is expected to arrive at Guam today at 7:46 p.m. local time.  We regret any inconvenience experienced by our customers.

            Last Friday another United Airlines flight from Hawaii was delayed due to a burning smell. The Boeing 777 eventually was cleared for take-off. On its way to Guam, however, it was diverted to Midway Island after experiencing what United Airlines stated was “mechanical issues.”          

            A passenger on board that flight, Manny Moreno, told KUAM News there were reports of a burning smell. He said while on Midway Island the pilot told them that “there wasn’t an actual fire but something electrical was burning and because of that they lost certain radios and radar.” More than 300 people were on board that flight.
