A Delta Airlines flight from Logan International Airport to Paris was diverted to New York on Tuesday night because of an issue with its generator, a spokeswoman for the airline said.
Flight 118 was carrying 197 passengers from Boston to Charles de Gaulle Airport when pilots discovered the issue and redirected the plane to John F. Kennedy International Airport, according to Sarah Lora, the spokeswoman.
The pilots decided it would be easier and faster to move the passengers onto another jet than to have them wait for repairs, Lora said.
“We try to get our customers up in the air as quickly as possible and inconvenience them as [little] as possible,” she said. “They are safely on the ground. The planes have been swapped.”
Lora did not have information on whether the generator issue affected conditions for passengers in the cabin, she said.
She said the flight will leave New York at 2 a.m. and arrive in Paris at 2:30 p.m. local time.
The plane was originally scheduled to leave Boston at 7:10 p.m. and arrive in Paris at 8:15 a.m., according to the Delta website.
