Narrative:
Pilots on a United Airlines Boeing 787-8 on a scheduled flight from Houston to Newark received "multiple messages" regarding flight-system errors, and diverted to New Orleans (KMSY). The problems occurred when one of the plane's generators failed. Power was supplied to the aircraft with the five functioning generators. The plane landed normally and no one was injured.
