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. This was the fourth time in a week that United Airlines had to deal with an emergency situation. In one incident, a tire came 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 the gate. United Airlines and the Federal Aviation Administration confirmed this information. The passengers were then flown to Mexico City International Airport using a different airplane.

The Airbus 320 has three hydraulic systems for backup, and the issue seemed to affect only one of them, as per United Airlines’ initial findings.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will investigate the incident.

This emergency diversion on Friday was the fourth for United Airlines in a week. The previous incidents included an engine catching fire midair on Monday, a flight losing a tire after takeoff on Thursday, and another plane sliding off a runway into a grassy area on Friday.

United Airlines expressed seriousness about safety and mentioned that they would investigate each incident from the week. They emphasized collaboration with manufacturers, the FAA, the NTSB, and component manufacturers in understanding and learning from these events. Safety remains their top priority, and they will continue efforts to keep customers and employees safe.
