A SOUTHWEST Airlines flight bound for Newark, New Jersey made an emergency landing on Wednesday due to a broken passenger window - as the beleaguered airline downplayed the situation as a "maintenance" issue. On that flight, Southwest 1380, passenger Jennifer Riordan died after an engine exploded mid-flight and a window was blown out.

A cracked airplane window forced a quick landing for a flight that was leaving IL. "It made you nervous because something like this just happened a little while ago and we didn't know if it was going to crack open or anything like that".

No injuries were reported after Flight 957 landed safely at Cleveland-Hopkins International Airport on Wednesday. People just started to disperse.

To get passengers to Newark, a flight that was supposed to go from Cleveland to Chicago was delayed so the plane could be used.

Photos, shared online, show a huge crack across one of the windows.

The incident occurred just weeks after Southwest Flight 1380 made an emergency landing in Philadelphia when an engine failure blew out one of its windows, almost sucking a passenger out of the cabin.

What caused a plane window to break?

Southwest said it was reviewing "a potential crack to the outer pane of a window".

The FAA will investigate the cracked window. As a note, the aircraft maintained pressurization as there are multiple layers of panes in each window. Southwest estimates the drop in sales will cost it between US$50 million and US$100 million.

The plane, which had departed from La Guardia Airport in NY and was bound for Dallas, made an emergency landing in Philadelphia.
