Following Delay, United Plane Takes Off

A United Airlines flight that stranded more than 200 passengers in Domodedovo Airport on Tuesday after an emergency landing took off Wednesday for its final destination in the United States.

The Boeing 777-200 jet traveling from Delhi, India to Newark, New Jersey landed just after 4 a.m. after pilots detected a problem with the aircraft's main battery.

Passengers complained that initially they were not provided with food or hotel rooms by the airline and could not exchange their rupees for rubles at the airport's exchange points. United said it worked with Domodedovo to feed the passengers.

A United spokesman said the plane took off Wednesday morning for Newark.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
