Passengers travelling by the flight told the media that, they were on three planes on Thursday. All of the planes were for Express Jet, which is a regional airline affiliated with United Airlines.

 

Elie Chemtob, a passenger from New Jersey said that, it was the longest day of her life. She added that, two emergency landings mechanical failure smoke on a plane, both planes chased by ambulance fire engine while landing.

 

The first plane departed from Newark, but had to return to the airport a short time later for unspecified reasons. The passengers were then transferred to a second plane, all boarded, and then were told they had to depart that plane. A reason was not given for this departure either.

 

All the passengers then boarded a third plane, an Embraer 145, which left Newark and made it to Rochester airspace. Unfortunately the 50-passenger plane then filled with smoke, so the plane had to make an emergency landing at the Greater Rochester International Airport.
