An American Airlines Airbus A321-200, registration N108NN performing flight AA-67 from New York JFK,NY to San Francisco,CA (USA) with 110 people on board, was climbing out of New York when the crew stopped the climb at FL240 and decided to divert to Chicago O'Hare,IL due to a hydraulic failure. The crew requested runway 28C and a long final (20-25nm) advising that they lost a number of spoilers, nose wheel steering, still had braking, but would need to land overweight hence emergency services were requested on stand by. The aircraft landed safely on runway 28C about 2 hours after departure from JFK.

A passenger reported the aircraft experienced "moderate chop" shortly after takeoff, whilst in the turbulence one of the hydraulic systems failed (the passenger understood it might have been the yellow hydraulic system). The aircraft diverted to Chicago where the aircraft was met on the runway by emergency services and subsequently towed to the apron.
