Boston-to-LA flight makes emergency landing in central NY

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — A plane bound from Boston to Los Angeles has made an emergency landing in Syracuse, New York, after reporting a possible engine problem.

The Federal Aviation Administration says in a statement that Delta Flight 2531 landed safely around 7:30 p.m. Friday at Syracuse Hancock International Airport after declaring an emergency.

Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines says the pilots got “an indication of a possible engine issue.”

The Boeing B757 taxied to a gate, with 157 passengers aboard. Another plane headed to Syracuse to take them to Los Angeles later Friday.

Delta is apologizing for the delay.
