NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A United Airlines plane bound for New Jersey has made an emergency landing in New Orleans.

Officials with United Airlines say Flight 1146 to Newark diverted Tuesday morning to New Orleans due to a mechanical issue that arose after the plane departed from Houston.

The Boeing 787 jet landed safely in New Orleans at about 9:45 a.m.

United says the flight carried 174 passengers and 10 crew members. The airline says it’s working with Boeing to determine what caused the unscheduled stop.

Airline spokeswoman Christen David says the company made arrangements for the passengers on a different aircraft to continue the flight to Newark.
