An American Airlines flight from Arizona to Hawaii had to turn around because of an issue with an exhaust gas temperature gauge.

PHOENIX >> Authorities say an American Airlines flight from Arizona to Hawaii had to return to the Phoenix airport because of a problem with an exhaust gas temperature gauge.

They say Flight 692 circled Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport a few times today to burn off fuel so an emergency landing could be avoided.

The Boeing 757 with 185 passengers and six crew members aboard landed safely.

American spokesman Ross Feinstein says passengers were being transferred to another plane that was scheduled to arrive early Friday in Honolulu.
