Chicago Department of Aviation spokeswoman Karen Pride said there was "a pressurization problem" on American Airlines Flight 2363, which landed about 10:30 a.m. Sunday. The flight had taken off from Chicago and returned there.

Pride didn't have further details.

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

The airline's Web site said the flight was headed from O'Hare to the Yampa Valley Regional Airport in Colorado. It arrived at its destination after 1 p.m. — about two hours later than scheduled.

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