United Airlines flight diverted to Toronto

A United Airlines flight was diverted to Toronto late Monday after the plane's communication system began to malfunction, an airline official said.

Flight 940 never lost contact with air traffic control, according to United spokesman Rahsaan Johnson. The extent of the problem with the communication system wasn't immediately clear, but was bad enough the captain asked to divert, he said.

    @terri sue...good morning. And than you for the 'alright guy'. Really. As far as how I view myself is concerned, I view myself about the same as I did several decades ago. My core-moral values have remain unchanged, while the same cannot be said of the general population. So you liked the twinkie joke, eh?

    Hi phil: Big Joe didn't fit. I'm back to Cesar. If "Cesar" does say something stupid, you'll know it's not me; it's monkey. U know, monkey see, monkey do. One or more people keep doing this B/S of using someone's name and posting crap. It's becoming easier to recognize it.
