American Airlines flight 256, which was bound for New York City, landed safely in Las Vegas at 3:27 p.m. local time after reports of smoke in the cockpit, officials at McCarran Airport said.
There were 81 passengers and eight crew members aboard the Airbus A321, which suffered a mechanical issue, American Airlines said. There were no injuries.
“Our maintenance team is currently evaluating the aircraft,” the airline said in a statement. “We apologize to our customers for the inconvenience, and are working to get them to New York as soon as possible.”
