LOS ANGELES >> An American Airlines flight from Los Angeles International Airport to Honolulu has landed safely back at LA after reporting engine trouble.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says Flight 283 took off Monday morning when the pilot declared an emergency and returned to the airport. The Boeing 757 landed safely shortly after 11:30 a.m.

American Airlines spokesman Andrew Christie says the flight reported that an engine generator failed. However, he says the jetliner, with 190 passengers and crew on board, was using both engines when it landed.

The FAA initially said one engine was out.
