Third United Dreamliner Flight in a Week to be Cut Short

For the third time in a week, United Airlines had to end a Boeing 787 Dreamliner flight early due to a mechanical glitch.  According to aviation officials, these glitches have not compromised the safety of the passengers or crew, but after the planes being grounded for three months due to safety issues with the lithium ion batteries on board, these glitches could compromise the reputation of Boeing.

The latest glitch to disrupt a United flight occurred on Sunday when a flight from Houston to Denver had to return to Houston shortly after takeoff because a brake indicator issue came up.  The plane made an emergency landing as a safety precaution and then a maintenance crew checked the plane and cleared it for service.  Last Thursday a United Dreamliner flight from London to Houston had to land in Newark due to a low engine oil indicator and last Tuesday a United flight from Houston to Tokyo had to be diverted to Seattle due to an issue with an oil filter.
