View Comments

(AP) – An American Airlines flight that was diverted by a problem with cabin pressure is back on its way to Los Angeles.

Airlines spokeswoman Dori Alvarez says Flight 1585 landed safely at Miami International Airport Thursday morning about an hour after taking off from nearby Fort Lauderdale.

It was headed to Los Angeles when the pilot received an indication of a pressurization problem and decided to land to get that checked out.

Alvarez says no problems were found on the plane, which took off a couple of hours later. There were 143 passengers and six crew members on board. No injuries were reported.
