The United Express operated Flight Express was from Knoxville, Tennessee, and was supposed to land at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston.
"You can see that we've lost two of our screens," one hears a member of the flight crew travelers in footage that was shot in the cabin. "If we fly on now, we would lose them all at some point, because there is not enough cooling, there is enormous heat behind these screens," the news said.
"If we had gone away, I would somehow fly blind. That's why we're in Dallas right now. It is unlikely that this plane will arrive anywhere tonight.
A representative of ExpressJet Airlines said a "mechanical problem" was to blame for the incident.
