Spirit flight destined for Pittsburgh gets flat tire after takeoff stopped

PITTSBURGH — A Spirit Airlines flight that was supposed to go from Las Vegas to Pittsburgh ended up with a flat tire after it was decided not to take off.

According to Spirit, Flight 334 “opted to not takeoff out of an abundance of caution due to a potential maintenance issue.”

The plane braked safely, but it got a flat tire while taxiing back to the gate, Spirit said.

Passengers were deplaned and brought back to the terminal.

No one was hurt.
