American Airlines jet slides off icy taxiway in Dallas

An American Airlines plane slid off a taxiway at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport on Monday due to icy conditions, an airline spokeswoman said.

There were no injuries among the 63 passengers and five crew members aboard the aircraft.

The pilot was attempting to manoeuvre from one taxiway to another when its nose wheel skidded and got stuck in the mud around 9:06 p.m. local time, said airline spokeswoman Andrea Huguely.
