ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Some travelers to Alaska have gotten an unexpected bus ride because of a low cloud ceiling near the Anchorage airport.

Alaska Airlines spokeswoman Nancy Trott says Flight 139 from Chicago to Anchorage was diverted to Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson on Monday afternoon because of a low cloud ceiling near the Anchorage airport.

The 155 passengers were then put on buses and driven to the Anchorage airport, about 10 miles away.
