An American Airlines spokesman says a flight from Boston to St. Thomas made an emergency landing at New York's John F. Kennedy Airport.

A pressurization problem in the cabin is being cited.

Flight 883 with 140 passengers aboard landed safely at about 10 a.m. Sunday. Airlines spokesman Jim Faulkner says the passengers were placed on another aircraft and went on to their destination.

He said officials would inspect the aircraft to determine what happened.

No injuries were reported.
