E-cigarette battery pack forces airplane landing in Little Rock

Reports originating in Indianapolis say an American Airlines flight there from Dallas was diverted to Little Rock for an uneventful landing this afternoon after a passenger's e-cigarette "malfunctioned." A substitute plane was dispatched.

The Fort Worth-Star Telegram quoted a passenger who said another passenger's e-cigarette battery pack began "smoking and sparking." Flight attendants put the battery pack in a lavatory and doused it with a fire extinguisher.

E-cigarette equipment is allowed in carry-on luggage, but smoking is not allowed on planes.
