American Airlines officials say a plane made an emergency landing at Pensacola International Airport due to “a strong odor” in the cabin Thursday, July 3.
American Airlines Flight 386 was en route from Jacksonville International Airport to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport when the incident occurred.
As a precaution, the MD-80 was diverted to Pensacola International Airport. The aircraft landed without incident and all 115 passengers and 5 crewsmembers are safe, according to American Airlines spokesperson Paul Flanigan. He said another jet was available to bring the passengers to Dallas with an expected arrival at 11:25 p.m.
