American Airlines jet leaving SFO to Miami diverts to Phoenix 

An American Airlines passenger jet headed from San Francisco to Miami made a precautionary landing at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport because of a generator problem.

A spokeswoman for the Fort Worth, Texas-based airline, Andrea Huguely, says the pilot of the twin-engine Boeing 767 decided to divert the plane on Tuesday afternoon because of a problem with one of two generators. Without the second generator, the pilot would have to run an auxiliary power unit.

Flight 476 was carrying 225 passengers and a crew of nine. Huguely says no injuries were reported and that passengers would be placed on a later flight.
