NEW YORK (CBS 2) — A plane that took off from JFK Airport had to be diverted Sunday, and on Monday the cause was still unknown.

The Vision Airlines flight bound for Cuba had to be diverted to Baltimore after the smell of smoke was reported in the cabin.

There was no word on the source of the smokey smell.

The Boeing 767 landed safely and none of the 154 passengers aboard was hurt.

A mechanic checked out the plane and cleared it to continue on to Havana.
