Odor causes Delta Air Lines flight to make emergency landing in Boston

MANCHESTER, N.H. - Authorities say a Delta Air Lines Inc. flight from Manchester, N.H., to Atlanta was forced to make an unscheduled landing in Boston over concern about an odor of fumes in the cabin.

Flight 1941 left Manchester-Boston Regional Airport at about 7:15 a.m. Friday.

Deputy Airport Director Brian O'Neil said a concern about an odor of fumes or possibly smoke caused the flight to be diverted to Logan Airport, where the plane landed safely. The MD 88 can carry more than 140 people.

No one was hurt. It wasn't immediately known what type of problem there was on the plane and whether it would continue on to Atlanta.
