American Airlines (Dallas/Fort Worth) flight AA 2293 from San Francisco to Dallas/Fort Worth yesterday (October 13) operated with a Boeing 757-200 with 184 passengers and six crew members on board was forced to return to SFO after an air  duct  caused some cabin panels to buckle and open up according to CNN.

According to CNN, quoting American Airlines spokesman Matt Miller, “The air duct became inoperable and a few of the panels inside the plane came loose. There were no other issues. It was considered an emergency landing because it was an unscheduled landing,”
