The plane burned off its fuel, then was diverted to JFK, according to officials. It landed safely at about 9 p.m. None of the 73 passengers and four crew members on board were hurt.

The airline arranged new plans for passengers to get to Kansas.

"Our pilots and flight attendants are specifically trained on a variety of unexpected scenarios in flight," Pinnacle Airlines spokesman Joe Williams said in a statement. "Our crew responded admirably and used their training to ensure the safety of the passengers."
