GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – A Southwest flight from Grand Rapids to Orlando returned to Gerald R. Ford International Airport due Monday afternoon.

Flight 807 left at about 2:27 p.m. and returned at 2:36 p.m.  An airport spokesperson says the return to Grand Rapids was done as a precaution.

Southwest Airlines told FOX 17 that the pilot returned to the airport due to a fuel indication light. The company did not say that there had been a fuel leak, but that the return to the airport was a precaution.

The 96 passengers were taken to Orlando on a different plane but arrived about four hours behind schedule. The original plane was put in maintenance, said Southwest.

There were five crew members on board.

There were no injuries.
