A new aircraft is being despatched to collect the passengers – believed to be after flight UA101 flying from Houston to Sydney, completes its current trip. According to The Guardian, this will involve a 12-hour delay for passengers, which will have them celebrating New Year in American Samoa, a territory of the USA.
