Passengers onboard Delta Flight 30 to Moscow out of JFK yesterday received quite the scare when one of the engines on their Boeing 767 shut down.

Sharing in the frightening experience was none other than Leonardo DiCaprio; who was en route to the Tiger Summit, an international forum on tiger conservation, as part of his role as an ambassador for the Global Tiger Initiative.

“[Leo] wishes to commend the actions of the pilot and flight crew in bringing the plane to a safe landing,” his spokesperson said in a release. And while the 36-year-old has yet to book another flight, one source told E! News that it wasn’t due to a lack of trying.

We’re just glad to hear everyone is safe!

The summit, which lasts five days, is being held in St. Petersburg and hosted by Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.
