LAS VEGAS (AP) - Officials say a Dallas-to-Las Vegas flight forced to land in New Mexico with engine problems has arrived in Nevada after an hours-long delay.

American Airlines spokesman Ross Feinstein said Monday the aircraft started having trouble after flight 1693 took off Sunday evening.

He says the plane landed safely in Albuquerque, New Mexico and no one was hurt.

After a six-hour delay, most of the nearly 180 passengers and took off again after being moved to a new plane. Some decided to stay overnight and fly out in the morning.

The fight arrived at McCarran International Airport early Monday morning.

Crews are investigating the cause of the problem on the Airbus A321, but believe it may be a compressor surge, which can make an engine stall.
