LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - An Atlanta-to-Los Angeles-area flight has made an emergency landing in Arkansas after a smoky odor was reported in the rear of the airplane.
Delta Flight 1941 landed at Little Rock on Thursday and taxied to a gate. Airline spokesman Michael Thomas said in a statement that passengers were placed on another airplane to continue their trip to Orange County, California.
The cause of the odor wasn't immediately known. The company cited a "possible maintenance issue."
The plane also had a crew of six.
