A United Airlines flight from San Francisco to Mexico City had to change its route to Los Angeles on Friday because there was a problem with the plane’s hydraulic system, according to the airline. This was the fourth time in a week that United Airlines had to deal with an emergency situation. In one incident, a tire fell off during a flight, and in another, an engine caught fire.

The Airbus 320, which had 105 passengers and five crew members on board, landed safely in Los Angeles. Everyone got off the plane at a gate, and the passengers were then flown to Mexico City International Airport on a different plane, as per the airline.

The Airbus 320 has three hydraulic systems for backup, and the issue seemed to affect only one of them, according to United.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) mentioned that they will look into the incident.

This was the fourth emergency for United Airlines in a week. On Monday, there was an incident where an engine sucked in bubble wrap and caught fire while in the air. On Thursday, a flight lost a tire after takeoff, and on Friday, another plane slid off a runway into a grassy area.

United Airlines stated that they take every safety event seriously and will investigate each incident from the week to understand what happened and learn from them. They work closely with manufacturers, the FAA, and the NTSB, as well as the manufacturers of specific components. Safety is their top priority, and they are committed to doing everything they can to ensure the safety of their customers and employees.
