A Southwest Airlines plane traveling from Nashville to Dallas Love Field Airport made an emergency landing at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport late Monday night.

The Southwest flight from Fort Lauderdale landed in Baltimore just before midnight.

The airline says they worked quickly to accommodate the 103 passengers to make sure they wouldn't be further delayed and offered "a gesture of goodwill" for the inconvenience.

None of the 172 passengers was hurt, and after a delay, they left the aircraft. "We will do our best to get you going asap".
