BOISE, Idaho—Officials say an American Airlines passenger jet traveling from Dallas to Seattle carrying 145 passengers and crew members landed in Boise, Idaho, on Saturday after the pilot reported a mechanical issue.

A Boise Airport spokeswoman tells KTVB-TV (http://bit.ly/yeKqfy) that the MD-80 landed safely at the Idaho airport.

Officials say the flight stopped in Boise as a precaution because of a low-oil indicator light.

Airline spokesman Matt Miller says an additional American Airlines aircraft was brought to Boise from Los Angeles to pick up passengers and take them to Seattle.

Officials say the airline also sent equipment from LA to repair the jet.
