An American Airlines flight that left Dallas Fort Worth International Airport on Wednesday evening was forced to make an emergency landing in Los Angeles after a possible mechanical problem was reported by the pilot.

Flight AA 345 landed at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) at around 8:45 p.m. with no reports of injuries aboard, to either passengers or crew.  The aircraft, a Boeing 777, was able to taxi on the runway after landing and let passengers disembark, an American Airlines spokesperson told KTLA 5.

The precise cause of the emergency, the result of what the pilot referred to as a "possible mechanical issue," is still unclear. Newsweek contacted American Airlines and Boeing for comment by email early on Thursday.

According to flight tracker website FlightAware, the flight, which left DFW at 19:35 CDT, landed at LAX some ten minutes ahead of its scheduled arrival.

The emergency landing in Los Angeles is only the latest in a recent string of incidents involving Boeing aircraft.

The flight crew reported it to be a low tire pressure indication.  Emergency crews checked out the aircraft after landing and found no damage.  The aircraft taxied normally to the gate.
