LAS VEGAS (AP) — Allegiant Airlines officials say a plane having engine problems turned around and returned to Las Vegas.

Allegiant spokesman Justin Ralenkotter says Flight 225 to Bellingham, Washington, departed McCarran International Airport at 7:10 p.m. Sunday before crew members noticed an oil temperature problem in one of the plane's two engines.

The MD-80 aircraft arrived back in Las Vegas at 7:48 p.m.

Ralenkotter says passengers haven't reported problems during the short ride, and the plane is designed to continue operating on a single engine.

The 140 passengers on board will receive a full refund as well as a $100 voucher for future travel and a hotel room if they live further than 50 miles away.

Another flight to Bellingham was scheduled for 7:30 a.m. Monday.
