A Delta Airlines Boeing 757-200, registration N521US performing flight DL-903 from Detroit,MI to Fort Lauderdale, FL (USA), had just reached cruise level 350 when the crew reported a smokey odor on board and decided to return to Detroit, subsequently changing the decision to divert to Cincinnati’s Northern Kentucky Airport,KY for a safe landing on runway 18C about 35 minutes later.
The airline reported the crew diverted out of abundance of caution after a smokey odor was detected on board.
A replacement Boeing 757-200 reached Fort Lauderdale with a delay of 6:15 hours.

For years the aviation industry has been telling the traveling public, flight attendants and pilots that the air on airplanes is safe. Unfortunately that is not always the case. Brodkowitz Law has broken new ground in this practice area by representing flight attendants, passengers and pilots who become ill after breathing contaminated air on airplanes during “fume events.”
f you have been exposed to contaminated air on an airplane there is important information that your doctor should know. Click here to obtain the Bleed Air Medical Protocol, a document designed to help doctors treat victims of fume events. Bring this document to your doctor.
