RALEIGH, North Carolina — A Delta flight headed to New York Monday morning made an emergency landing in North Carolina after reporting engine trouble, officials said.
The Delta Boeing took off from Tampa for LaGuardia, but diverted to Raleigh Durham International Airport around 9:35 a.m. because of problems with the left engine, an FAA official said.
The 96 customers and five crew members were uninjured, a Delta spokesman said. The customers boarded another flight in Raleigh and landed in New York around 2:30 p.m.
“The safety of our customers and crew is our top priority and we apologize for the inconvenience,” a Delta spokesman said.
