UAL940 jacked by a cup of joe


A pilot’s spilled coffee has been blamed for accidentally activating a hijacking alert and prompting a United Airlines flight from Chicago to Germany to stop in Canada on Monday.

The pilot of Flight 940 triggered an emergency code after spilling coffee on radio equipment while en route to Frankfurt, Transport Canada said.

The aircraft landed safely at Pearson International Airport in Toronto.


Fate is the Hunter


That’s gonna cost United a bit more than a cup of Seattle’s finest.


Why I love Flight Aware!
