2 broken 757s now in Stockholm

Passed thru passport control , in line for boarding UA 2834 and station manager said the plane, UA 68 that flew in from EWR this am is broken and a 2 hr delay while they tow the broken plane from 8/4 canceled flight to our gate and provision it. Why 2 hrs? The paperwork for the MX has not been signed of on back in the USA allowing it to fly. We are trapped here waiting for someone in USA to get up in the middle of the night and sign paperwork(?). FAs and pilots are here in waiting area.

i will opine that 8/5 UA69 ARN-EWR, which was at a 5 hr delay already, cancels due to MX.

Only 1 broken 757 in Stockholm now

We boarded UA 2738 expect to be airborne by noon local time, so almost 3 hour delay.
They towed the plane for today’s UA 69 back to the hanger.

Add this to the mix. Just got off UA 896 HKG to ORD. Nice flight, 15 min early. Flight was delayed on tarmac for 90 minutes due an inability to find an open gate. Got to gate at 3 pm.

I'm Global Services and have a 330 connection. Not that I expect too much from GS given the need to clear customs and then TSA again, but it was kind of humorous that the GS agent who met me at the gate handed me a boarding pass and said "you have Global Entry and Precheck. Run!"

Really? I needed GS to tell me that? Actually, they were very nice and rebooked me on the 550 connection...

On 7/27 we were trying to fly MSP-EWR-YHZ, and learned the EWR-YHZ leg was cancelled while we were still waiting for ATC clearance to start boarding MSP-EWR. I called UA and tried to get us moved to MSP-YYZ-YHZ on AC, but UA said no seats were available on the YYZ-YHZ leg; so, our trip to Halifax was delayed by a day. Later I noticed that my AC app said the YYZ-YHZ flight went out with seats available. Maybe that changed after the UA agent talked to me. Or maybe AC wouldn’t let UA have the seats?

UA 891 SFO-PVG Diverted HNL

Anyone know what happened with UA 891 on 8/4? Flight aware shows a diversion to HNL.

Thanks!
I'm wondering if "foul smell in the aircraft" means smoke, or some other 'foul smell'

I was on that flight but didn't smell anything. It was reported only in the forward enonomy cabin. They were initally asking if any passenger brought any smelly food like durian... Anyone knows any probable cause?

Stockholm

8/6 UA 2804 ARN-EWR departure moved from 12 to 14:00 due to MX. 8/6 UA 69 ARN-EWR went out full ontime and UA 2804 seatmap shows only 40 of 169 seats occupied.

Last nights flight 120 Newark to Barcelona delayed 15+ hours. Now scheduled to leave this morning at 10:30am. As a result the return Barcelona to Newark today has cancelled.
