Plane makes emergency landing safely at NYC
NEW YORK (AP) - April 4, 2011 (WPVI) -- An American Airlines spokesman says a flight from Boston to St. Thomas has landed safely at New York's John F. Kennedy Airport after developing a pressurization problem in the cabin.
Flight 883 with 140 passengers aboard landed about 10 a.m. Sunday. No injuries were reported. Airlines spokesman Jim Faulkner said the passengers were placed on another aircraft and went on to their destination.
He said officials would inspect the aircraft - a Boeing 757 - to determine what happened.
The emergency landing follows a harrowing flight Friday when a Southwest Airlines plane was forced to land at an Arizona military base after its fuselage ruptured. No one was seriously injured as the Boeing 737 carrying 118 people lost cabin pressure and made a controlled descent from 34,400 feet.
