A United Boeing 737-900, registration N37437 performing flight UA-483 from Chicago O'Hare,IL to Phoenix,AZ (USA), was climbing out of Chicago when the crew stopped the climb at FL280 and decided to divert to Cedar Rapids,IA (USA) due to problems with one of the engines (CFM56). While the aircraft was on approach to Cedar Rapids emergency crews were told all the engines had been restarted. The aircraft landed safely on Cedar Rapid's runway 27 about 33 minutes after stopping the climb at FL280, vacated the runway and stopped on the adjacent taxiway for an inspection of engines and brakes.

Passengers reported the aircraft suffered engine problems.
