United Airlines Flight 510 never made it to Rome after the Boeing 777 experienced an issue with its cabin pressurization, forcing the plane to rapidly drop and the pilot to turn the aircraft carrying 270 passengers and 14 crew members around,a spokesperson told The Post.
The plane took off from Newark Liberty International Airport at 8:37 p.m. and landed back at the airport at 12:27 a.m. instead of its planned destination of Rome–Fiumicino International Airport, according to flight tracker FlightAware.
