MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- An AirTran Airways flight carrying 65 people from New Orleans to Milwaukee had to make an emergency landing in Tennessee when smoke and an odor was reported onboard.
The Boeing 717 landed safely in Memphis on Saturday night. No one was injured.
The airline says in a statement that flight 619 was diverted to Memphis out of an abundance of caution.
AirTran spokeswoman Cynthia Tinsley-Douglas told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Sunday that the passengers were put on another plane and arrived in Milwaukee just after midnight.
The airline says it is looking into what happened.
