An American Airlines flight was forced into making an emergency landing on Wednesday, after what a passenger described as a "sudden burst of smoke" on board.

American Airlines confirmed the diversion on Twitter, responding to passenger Terron Austin who tweeted his flight from Los Angeles to New York had been diverted to Phoenix.

Austin said there had been a "sudden burst of smoke followed by an announcement to immediately prepare for landing."

American Airlines have not yet confirmed the reports of smoke inside the plane. Business Insider has contacted the airline for comment.

Flight AA10 took off from Los Angeles International (LAX) at 9:10 p.m. (PT) on Wednesday night, heading for John F. Kennedy Airport in New York, where it was scheduled to land at 8:17 a.m. local time.

But the Airbus A321 was diverted to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport after one hour and 36 minutes in the air, 372 miles east of LAX, according to the Flightradar24 tracking website.
