Stranded United passengers spend the night on jet after plane diverted

Passengers on board a United Airlines flight were left trapped on the tarmac in Canada for more than 15 hours on Saturday. Flight 179 left Newark, New Jersey, and headed to Hong Kong with 250 passengers and 15 crew on board. With no customs officers working overnight, passengers were forced to spend the night on the plane. A second United plane brought the stranded passengers back to Newark Sunday.
