A United Boeing 767-400, registration N59053 performing flight UA-28 from London Heathrow,EN (UK) to Newark,NJ (USA) with 227 passengers and 13 crew, was climbing out of London Heathrow when the crew stopped the climb at FL100 due to the cabin not pressurizing. The aircraft entered a hold to troubleshoot, then burn off and dump fuel before returning to Heathrow for a safe landing on runway 27L about 4:45 hours after departure.

The flight was cancelled.

Passengers reported the crew announced the cabin pressure became too low, they therefore needed to stay at low altitude. After landing the left hand engine cowl was opened by maintenance.

The airline reported the aircraft experienced a maintenance issue.

The aircraft flew to Newark the following morning as flight UA-2056 and reached Newark with a delay of 24 hours.
