When you fly enough, you’ll see everything, in my case, this was some strange odor on a flight yesterday that caused the plane to return. All the smoke detectors went off over the Olympic Peninsula, so it wasn’t super fun to have to divert. The flight left this morning, so hopefully it will be trouble free :_)
The United incident involved Flight 875, which left for Narita Airport at 1:42 p.m. Tuesday afternoon with 252 passengers and 14 crew members.
Airline spokeswoman Megan McCarthy says it turned around a short time later and landed safely at about 2:30 p.m., as emergency crews stood by.
McCarthy says one flight attendant was checked by paramedics for some respiratory discomfort, but there were no other reports of injuries. The source of the odor is not immediately known.
The plane was taken out of service, and passengers were to be put on a replacement plane for the flight Wednesday morning
