Southwest Airlines Flight Makes Emergency Landing After Running Out Of Fuel

International Business Times 

A Southwest Airlines flight bound for Pittsburgh was forced to make an emergency landing Sunday after running out of fuel. The airline said it reboarded its 143 customers on buses from a neighboring airport to the flight's intended destination, and passengers aboard the carrier were given pizza. "Southwest Flight 3316 operating from Orlando to Pittsburgh Sunday night safely landed at Allegheny County Airport to avoid using contingency fuel reserve," a representative for Southwest Airlines confirmed in a Monday statement to International Business Times. "Out of an abundance of caution, the Captain in command declared an emergency to receive priority handling from air traffic controllers to use the alternate airport." Details surrounding the reason for landing are still unclear, though News 6 reported Monday that passengers were told that an air show affected the flight's ability to get clearance to land in Pittsburgh.
