GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Delta Flight 1392 en-route from Salt Lake City to Boston was diverted to Gerald Ford Airport due to a pressurization issue.  Delta’s website has confirmed that the flight has landed safely.

According to airport officials, there was a problem with pressurization in the cabin, causing the diversion.  153 people were on the plane at the time, including crew.  It landed at 10:15 p.m. with no problems.

Delta also has a flight from Detroit to Grand Rapids with the exact same type of plane, and it had landed earlier in the day.  The passengers on the diverted plane boarded it and continued on to Boston later in the night.  The plane that malfunctioned is being fixed overnight.
