LOS ANGELES (AP) - Authorities say a Delta Airlines jetliner had a flat tire after landing safely at Los Angeles International Airport following a flight from Atlanta.

Airport police officer Rob Pedregon says the pilot of Flight 2355 reported a possible wheel problem before landing around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Delta spokesman Ashton Morrow says the tire deflated during takeoff.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says the flat tire was reported after the Boeing 757 was on the ground.

Pedregon says passengers were taken by bus to the gate. The aircraft, which was carrying 181 people, was towed in for inspection and maintenance.
