Smell Of Burning Bread Crumbs Causes AA Flight To Divert To Boston

BOSTON (CBS) —The smell of burning bread crumbs caused an American Airlines flight to divert back to Boston, Sunday morning.

Flight 1532 left Boston at 6:36 a.m. and was headed to Miami when people on board smelled smoke.

The fight was turned back around toward Boston and landed at Logan at 7:10 a.m.

A spokesperson from American Airlines says once on the ground, it was discovered the smell was from burning bread crumbs. The oven was cleaned and the flight took off again at 8:20 a.m.

One hundred fifty passengers and five crew members were onboard the aircraft.
