A Federal Aviation Administration spokesman says a United Airlines flight from San Francisco to San Diego diverted to Los Angeles International Airport because of an engine issue.

FAA spokesman Ian Gregor says United Flight 284 landed without incident at 7:27 a.m. Wednesday.

There are no immediate details of the nature of the problem with the aircraft, a twin-engine Boeing 757.

The airline's flight status website notes the diversion and a delay for maintenance.
