Alaska Airlines Jet Out of SFO Diverts to LAX Over ‘Smelly' Odor in Cabin

An Alaska Airlines flight that left San Francisco for New Orleans with 136 people aboard was diverted Sunday to Los Angeles International Airport after the flight crew detected what the airline described as a "strong odor" in the cabin.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported the plane was diverted to Los Angeles on Sunday afternoon.

The newspaper says the plane landed safely and no emergency was declared.

Alaska Airlines says technicians were inspecting the plane in an effort to uncover what caused the smell.

Meanwhile, passengers were being rebooked on other flights.
