Passengers pray after Delta jet loses engine

Another passenger, Avery Porch, heard "a boom" about an hour into the flight and smoke began to fill the cabin, she told WMAR-TV.

"The Captain came on the loudspeaker and said that we had lost an engine and that they were making preparations to have an emergency landing", passenger Jose Bahamonde-Gonzalez said. She praised the actions of the crew, saying they "did an wonderful job in staying and keeping us all calm, while preparing us for an emergency landing". "It [the plane] started slowing down a bit [and] the air cut off", she said.

Delta's Flight 1425 - a 32-year-old MD-88 - left Hartsfield-Jackson International Baltimore-Washington International around 12:48 Monday.

Tyler Kreuger, Porch's boyfriend, said that even though he had no service midair, he still texted his parents: "I love you".
