Flight from Portland to John Wayne Airport diverted to LAX

LOS ANGELES – – An Alaska Airlines flight from Portland to John Wayne Airport was safely drawn away to Los Angeles International Flight terminal tonight after a solid plastic smell was reported coming from the back galley, an airline authorities claimed.

Flight 1154, a Jet A320 with 146 passengers and 5 team members aboard, had to do with thirty minutes from Orange Area when crew members reported the odor, according to Alaska Airlines External Communications Supervisor Bobbie Egan.

“Out of a wealth of caution, the staff declared an emergency for priority handling and also landed securely at LAX at 7:46 p.m.,” Egan stated. “We’ve removed the airplane from solution as well as maintenance technicians are evaluating the aircraft.”

The airplane arrived on runway 24-right, according to Nicholas Prange of the Los Angeles Fire Division, which responded as well as tended to a minimum of 2 individuals who had some type of medical grievance.

Both individuals were checked out and launched at the scene as well as no person was taken to a healthcare facility, he said.

Some information electrical outlets reported there was smoke in the trip deck, yet that was unreliable, Egan said.
