SEA-TAC, Wash. (AP) — A Delta Air Lines spokesman says the captain of a flight from San Diego to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport declared an emergency Monday afternoon after a cockpit indicator suggested a potential brake issue.

Spokesman Trebor Banstetter says Flight 5811, operated by Delta Connection carrier Compass Airlines, landed without incident.

The spokesman didn’t have a total passenger count but says the Embraer 175 has 76 seats. The aircraft was being checked out late Monday.

Airport spokesman Perry Cooper says Sea-Tac was ready with emergency equipment if needed.
