An ExpressJet Airlines flight was redirected to the Dallas / Fort Worth International Airport on Thursday night after a pair of cockpit screens were allegedly shiny before they had intended destination.
The cockpit staff informed the passengers of the reason for the changeover at landing, telling travelers that the crew would have been "flying blind" if the aircraft remained in the air.

The aircraft, which served as United Express, originated from Knoxville, Tenn., And was scheduled to land at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston.
"You may see that we lost two of our screens," a flight crew member may be told to tell travelers in admission shared inside the cabin. "Now, if we continued to fly, we would lose them all. Finally, because there is not enough cooling. There is tremendous heat behind these screens," the message conti nued.
"If we had continued, I would move in the end. So, therefore, we are in Dallas right now. It is unlikely that this plane goes anywhere tonight."
An ExpressJet Airlines representative said it was a " mechanical problem "which was the cause of the incident.
