    A Delta flight that took off from LaGuardia Airport Thursday morning suffered a bird strike and had to land at John F. Kennedy airport.

    The flight was headed to Boston and took off just before noon.

    There were no injuries.

    Bird strikes have been an ongoing issue at New York-area airports, most famously causing the double engine failure on US Airways Flight 1549 in January 2009, which landed safely in the Hudson River.
