Smoky Odor Brings Delta Flight Back To JFK

NEW YORK (AP) — A Delta flight that took off from John F. Kennedy International Airport returned to the airport because of a smoky odor near one of the galleys.

Delta spokesman Paul Skrbec said Flight 268 had taken off Saturday night, headed for Tel Aviv, Israel. The odor became noticeable shortly into the flight and the captain decided to return to JFK in an “abundance of caution.”

The 390 passengers on the flight were given accomodations for the night. Skrbec said the flight was rescheduled for Sunday evening.

    Maybe someone was eating beans & burritos … had a little too much to eat … had to relieve that terrible pressure … and just let it rip. It’s not like you can just open the windows to air out the cabin.
