ST. LOUIS (KMOV) - A flight going from Dallas to Boston made an unscheduled landing at Lambert Airport in St. Louis on Thursday.
A "hydraulic system issue" was the reason for the unscheduled landing of American Airlines Flight 1506, said airline spokesperson Mary Frances Fagan.
No emergency was declared, according to the airline, and the 188 passengers will be transferred to other flights.
Those onboard were already forced to change planes before taking off from Dallas because the first plane also had problems.
The Boeing 757 left Dallas just after 1 p.m. and landed in St. Louis at 2:46 p.m.
Officials said a loose seat issue on many American Airlines planes was not a factor in this case.
