FAA probing JetBlue emergency landing
LAS VEGAS -- Federal aviation officials are investigating the emergency landing in Las Vegas last weekend of a New York-bound aircraft that circled for almost four hours after the pilot reported a hydraulic system failure.
FAA spokesman Ian Gregor said Thursday that investigators are looking at what happened on JetBlue Flight 194 before it returned safely Sunday to its point of origin at McCarran International Airport.
A JetBlue statement says the aircraft departed at 3:45 p.m. for John F. Kennedy International Airport with 150 passengers and five crew members aboard before the captain declared an emergency after losing one of three hydraulic systems.
The A320 aircraft used backup hydraulics, burned fuel, and landed safely at McCarran.
JetBlue says a replacement aircraft flew the passengers overnight to New York, and they received refunds.
