A United Boeing 767-300, registration N663UA performing flight UA-12 from Zurich (Switzerland) to Chicago O'Hare,IL (USA), was enroute at FL340 about 500nm northwest of Shannon (Ireland) when the crew decided to turn around and divert to Shannon reporting a passenger's laptop had become stuck in the seat. The aircraft descended to FL330 and landed safely on Shannon's runway 06 about 90 minutes after the decision to turn around.

The airline reported the aircraft diverted to Shannon to address a potential safety problem caused by a laptop being stuck in an inaccessible location.

The aircraft is still on the ground in Shannon due to crew duty time limitations. The passengers were taken to hotels.
