    Don't have the details but the pilot of our flight 2426 LAX-DFW advised the pax that we would be circling for a while due to a declared emergency. After about 20 minutes of S turns we landed. Fire trucks are lining the taxieays. No other details...

    Article says a KE 777 had an engine fire, had to dump fuel, and return to DFW.

    I was coming in from SJU on Sunday and got to do a go-around right before landing. Was up in the air for about 20 minutes, then landed and got stuck in the ground snarl near A, which gave me a 20 minute connection time to LAX. They ended up holding the LAX flight though since there were about 30 people on my flight ocnnecitng to that one, which was nice.
