      More women opting for preventive mastectomy - but should they be?

      Rates of women who are opting for preventive mastectomies, such as Angeline Jolie, have increased by an estimated 50 percent in recent years, experts say. But many doctors are puzzled because the operation doesn't carry a 100 percent guarantee, it's major surgery -- and women have other options, from a once-a-day pill to careful monitoring.

Chicago Department of Aviation spokeswoman Karen Pride says there was "a pressurization problem" on the American Airlines flight 2363, which landed around 10:30 a.m. Sunday.

She didn't have any further details.

According to American Airlines' Web site, flight 2363 was headed from O'Hare to the Yampa Valley Regional Airport in Colorado. It arrived at the destination after 1 p.m. — about two hours later than scheduled.

Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford says there 119 people aboard the Boeing 737.

An American Airlines spokesman didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
