A company official says a United Airlines Express flight headed to Chicago had to return to St. Louis because of computer trouble in screening passengers.

Spokesman Fred Oxley said GoJet Airlines, the regional carrier operating the flight, had a problem with its computers Friday morning, and manually checked in passengers.

Oxley is a spokesman for Trans State Holdings, which owns GoJet. He says the computers started working after the flight took off from Lambert-St. Louis International Airport. That's when the carrier learned the name of one of the passengers matched one on the Transportation Security Administration's restricted passenger list.

Oxley says the flight returned around 8 a.m. and GoJet determined the passenger was not the same person on the list. The plane took off again around 9:30 a.m. and landed in Chicago.
