BOSTON – A flight of U.S. Airways to Charlotte, North Carolina was diverted to Boston on Saturday after smoke was found in the cabin, the airline said.
None of the 192 passengers was injured, but four flight attendants were taken to a local hospital for evaluation, said the U.S. Airways spokeswoman Liz Landau.
The smoke dissipated in the cabin before landing, Landau said, but Flight 749 from Madrid, Spain was diverted as a safety precaution and landed at Boston's Logan Airport International shortly after 11 am local time.
The plane out of service and inspected, he said. (Reporting by Lauren Keiper, edited by Ellen Wulfhorst)
