Passengers flying an American Airlines flight into Pittsburgh Wednesday night had to remain on board for about two hours more than they expected when the plane ran over a snow patch and got stuck.
JoAnn Jenny, a spokeswoman for Pittsburgh International Airport, said the plane landed safely between 8 and 9 p.m. and was on a ramp taxiing to the gate when it ran over a snow patch and some snow got stuck in a gear, stranding the plane on the ramp.
Ms. Jenny said airport workers tried for nearly two hours to tow the plane to the gate and then decided to bring a bus to transport people from the plane to the terminal.
No one was injured.
