Alaska Airlines flight diverted to Ketchikan

KETCHIKAN, Alaska (AP) -- Mechanical problems forced an Alaska Airlines flight en route from Anchorage to Chicago to land in Ketchikan.

Ketchikan public safety officials say the plane with 135 passengers on board landed safely Monday morning.

Ketchikan Public Safety Director Rich Leipfert said the fire department received a call from the airport regarding a flight that had reported an in-flight emergency having to do with a fuel transfer problem.

Alaska Airlines spokeswoman Caroline Boren said Flight 118 landed in Ketchikan with a "mechanical issue."

Boren told the Ketchikan Daily News on Monday that additional details weren't immediately available, and could not confirm a fuel transfer problem.

Boren told The Associated Press on Tuesday she did not have any updated information.

Another Alaska Airlines jet was sent to Ketchikan to continue the flight.
