DENVER (AP) - A Frontier Airlines plane that left Denver with 227 people on board was forced to make an emergency landing in New Orleans because of a mechanical issue.

Airline spokesman Jim Faulkner tells KMGH-TV (http://goo.gl/JgIOgL ) in Denver that Flight 688 landed safely in New Orleans early Friday morning on its way to Orlando, Florida.

Faulkner says no one was hurt, and Frontier flew empty planes to New Orleans to pick up the stranded passengers. Faulkner did not offer details about the mechanical problem.
