Smoke diverts NYC-to-Montreal flight to upstate
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - An American Eagle flight from New York City's LaGuardia Airport to Montreal has made a safe emergency landing in upstate New York after smoke was reported in the cockpit and cabin.
Albany International Airport spokesman Doug Myers says Flight 3364 was just west of the field when the crew reported an odor and smoke. The plane was cleared for the emergency landing at about 5 p.m. Tuesday.
The 39 passengers and crew members were taken off the plane. There were no injuries.
Airport fire and safety crews are trying to determine the cause of the smoke.
The airport spokesman says it's unclear how the travelers will resume their trip because American Eagle doesn't serve Albany.
