LOS ANGELES >> An American Airlines flight from Hawaii has landed safely on one engine at Los Angeles International Airport after the pilot reported engine trouble.

Airline spokesman Matt Miller in Dallas says instruments on Flight 246 showed trouble with the left engine about an hour before its scheduled arrival and the engine was shut down. 

He says the aircraft is designed to fly safely on one engine. 

The Boeing 757 jetliner landed at 5:19 a.m. from Kona and passengers got off at the terminal gate. The 147 people on board, including the seven crewmembers, were not injured.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says FAA inspectors will work with the airline to determine the cause of the problem and ensure it is fixed before the plane is returned to service.

I have always objected to using two-engine aircraft on flights to Hawai'i, the most isolated major destination in the world. This incident only strengthens my worries. Oh, how I miss those wonderful Boeing 747s . . . four engines, and lots of passenger room.
