AUSTIN -- A Southwest Airlines plane made and emergency landing at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport Tuesday afternoon. The plane landed with just one functioning engine.

Flight number 1647 bound for Ft. Lauderdale from Phoenix had 139 passengers on board.

I'm guessing PAX are making their way to FLL by now. Doesn't say what caused the engine failure.

Here is the tracking website for it.

Appears they cancelled the FLL-MCO section as somehow MCO-MDW which is continuing is flying onward.

It's more likely they have, or can get a spare at MCO vs FLL so they can re-originate the flight in MCO and they may have been able to accommodate those FLL-MCO pax on earlier or later flights given that it's the middle of the week.
