LOS ANGELES (AP) - An American Airlines flight has made a safe emergency landing at Los Angeles International Airport after the crew reported the smell of smoke aboard the aircraft.
    
Airport spokeswoman Nancy Castles says Flight 10 took off about 9:48 p.m. PST Wednesday headed for New York's Kennedy Airport. She says the crew detected the smell of something burning and the Boeing 767-200 returned to the airport and landed without incident nine minutes later.
    
Castles says there were 164 people aboard the aircraft.
    
A phone message left with American Airlines was not immediately returned Wednesday night.
