WASHINGTON – An American Airlines flight made an unscheduled landing at Washington Dulles International airport after being diverted, according to Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority.

An Airline spokesman says a pressure indicator warning went on and the pilot decided to make the unscheduled landing. But the cabin never lost pressure.
