In Brief: “Paperwork Issue” Forces SkyWest Flight to Turn Back Two Hours Into Three-Hour Trip

A SkyWest Airlines flight headed for Mexico was forced to turn back to Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) on Tuesday because of a “paperwork issue.” The pilot of Flight 4507 reportedly made the announcement two hours into the three-hour flight, stunning all 57 passengers onboard the Canadair jet. The airline apologized and compensated the affected flyers with free hotel rooms, food vouchers and tickets for another flight on Wednesday, but it would not elaborate on the details of the clerical issue.

I'm always amazed that Delta's PR people are able to keep Delta's name out of these stories. It is impressive.

That's some pretty lame compensation. It's time for a version of EU261 in US.
