An American Airlines flight from Tulsa made an emergency landing Wednesday in Dallas, Texas.

Flight 1060, bound for DFW International Airport from Tulsa International Airport, landed safely around 7:40 a.m. Wednesday. An American Airlines spokeswoman wrote in a statement that the plane, a Boeing 737, had to land after crew members noticed an odor in the cockpit.

There were 158 passengers and six crew members on board. No injuries were reported.

Tulsa City Councilor, Phil Lakin, Jr., had a family member on board the plane. His wife sent him a text message that read, "So this is crazy the pilot came on and said there's no more service he was starting to descend right away and we landed in Dallas right away and we were met by fire trucks and ambulances."

Lakin said his wife did not smell an odor.

American Airlines says maintenance crews are looking at the plane.
