SJ Flights Forced to Make Emergency Landing

A Delta Air Lines flight bound for Atlanta made an emergency  landing at San Francisco International Airport today after a warning light  went on in the cockpit, a Delta spokesman said.

The Boeing 737 carrying 93 passengers and six crewmembers left  Mineta San Jose International Airport at 6:25 a.m. and landed safely at SFO  around 7:30 a.m., Delta spokesman Anthony Black said.

Black said the emergency landing was made after a light came on  indicating there was a fuel transfer problem.

However, after passengers exited the plane, a maintenance crew  found that the light indicator system was malfunctioning, not the fuel  system, Black said.

The flight was canceled and passengers were reassigned to other  flights.
