  • Damage doesn’t cause cabin of Boeing 737 to lose pressure
  • New Jersey-bound Flight 957 lands in Cleveland instead

A Southwest Airlines Co. jetliner made an unscheduled landing after a window cracked, two weeks after an accident on a separate plane in which a passenger was partially sucked out of a destroyed window and died.

Flight 957 from Chicago-Midway to Newark, New Jersey, didn’t lose cabin pressure as it diverted to Cleveland, Southwest said in a statement Wednesday. An emergency wasn’t declared.
