PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) - A United Airlines flight from Chicago-to-Portland was diverted to the airport in Pendleton, Oregon, because it needed fuel.

The East Oregonian newspaper reports (https://is.gd/rRDRMa) the plane landed Friday morning and the 130 or so passengers did not get off the plane. The Boeing 737 resumed its flight to Portland at 12:20 p.m.

The newspaper reports the plane needed more fuel so it could circle Portland. President Barack Obama left Portland International Airport around noon, causing flight delays.
