  • The Boeing 737 left Fort Lauderdale late Sunday night. According to the airline's flight tracker it landed in Baltimore at 12:46 a.m. shortly before its scheduled arrival

A Southwest Airlines plane traveling from Nashville to Dallas Love Field Airport made an emergency landing at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport late Monday night.

The airline says they worked quickly to accommodate the 103 passengers to make sure they wouldn't be further delayed and offered "a gesture of goodwill" for the inconvenience. "We've added eight time-saving new routes just this year for our loyal San Jose Customers to get to places such as Orlando, St Louis, and Spokane without a stop or a drive to another airport".

The incident first came to light after a passenger on the aircraft tweeted about the incident upon arrival.


Southwest confirmed an incident to USA TODAY's Today in the Sky blog, saying that there were no injuries to any of the 172 passengers. The circumstances that led to the accident is not yet known.

In April, an engine on a Southwest plane exploded in the middle of a flight. Riordan was nearly sucked out of the window, but was saved by her co-passengers.

The Southwest Airlines flight was taxiing to its gate, when a ground crew's pickup truck hit the Boeing 737 at Baltimore-Washington International Airport.
