    A United Airlines airplane flying from Denver to Los Angeles was diverted to Grand Junction, Colorado on Wednesday afternoon after six passengers fell ill, local media reported.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The six passengers experienced nausea and headaches after oxygen masks deployed on a flight with 156 people on board, NBC News reported on Wednesday.

    Unites Airlines explained the flight was diverted because of a medical issue onboard the aircraft. The company said all passengers were evacuated and took a different flight to Los Angeles.

    On July 8, 2015, the US Federal Aviation Administration grounded all United Airlines and its sub-carriers’ domestic flights because of an “automation issue” that was resolved later.
