BOSTON (AP) — An engine-related issue forced an Iberia Airways flight en route to Madrid to make and emergency landing at Logan Airport.
The Boston Globe reports an Iberia spokeswoman says the plane landed without incident and there were no injuries to any of the 265 passengers.
The flight originated Tuesday around 9:15 p.m. at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport. The spokeswoman said about 90 minutes into the flight crew members noticed an engine-related issue. The plane landed safely in Boston.
Melissa Miller, of New York, says she was on the flight and that passengers “knew something was up” when a smoke- and gas-like odor filled the cabin.
