BOISE -- An American Airlines flight from Chicago to Seattle was diverted to Boise Saturday afternoon after the pilot reported an engine out.    

A spokeswoman for the Boise Airport says the MD-80 aircraft, with 141 passengers and crew onboard, landed safely and without incident.
   
Those 141 passengers are now in the process of being rebooked on other airlines to get them to Seattle.
   
In the meantime, the spokeswoman said American Airlines is flying another MD-80 aircraft to Boise.

That plane will have parts and mechanics on board to fix the aircraft stranded in Boise.
