    A Delta Air Lines flight landed Thursday at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport after reporting a pressurization issue, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

    Delta flight 1665, an Airbus A320 with 150 passengers and 5 crew members on board, scheduled from D/FW to Salt Lake City returned and landed without incident at about 4:14 p.m., FAA spokesman Lynn Lunsford told NBC 5.

    A woman who said she was a passenger on the flight told NBC 5 that the flight crew told passengers "that we lost cabin pressure and needed to make an emergency landing."

    The flight was originally diverted to Amarillo, but due to the loss of cabin pressure, the pilot made the decision to safely return to D/FW, where maintenance technicians began evaluating the aircraft.

    There were no injuries and no reported customer concerns, a Delta spokesman said in a statement to NBC 5.

    "The safety of our customers and crew members is always Delta's top priority," the airline statement continued.
