An express flight from Mesa Airlines, flight No. 2750, headed to the San Luis Obispo airport from Phoenix, Ariz., was delayed earlier today when a warning light signaled a problem with the cargo area.
The 45 passengers headed to San Luis Obispo were detoured to Palm Springs International Airport. There they changed planes and are expected to arrive in San Luis Obispo at 5:45 p.m. today — two hours later than the original arrival scheduled for 3:32 p.m.
The original plane is being flown back to Phoenix to be inspected, said Brian Gillman, spokesman for Mesa Airlines.
