An American Airlines plane flying from Reagan National to Dallas Ft. Worth on Wednesday afternoon (March 27) diverted to Washington Dulles due to a cabin pressure problem.

American Flight 1491, an MD-80 jet, declared an emergency shortly after takeoff.

‘The American Airline pilots may have had a pressurization issue on American Airlines Flight #1491. The pilots apparently landed the plane on Runway 1C at Dulles.

The plane circled [to burn fuel] Dulles before landing at approximately 2:15 p.m. Emergency vehicles were standing by.’

An American Eagle jet flying from Miami to Cincinnati made an emergency landing at Jacksonville due to a fumes smell on board.

The small 60 to 70 seat commuter jet safely landed at Jacksonville International Airport, where emergency crews were waiting on the ground.

A spokesperson with American Airlines reported passengers on the flight reported smelling fumes similar to finger nail polish remover. The plane landed out of “an abundance of caution,” the spokesperson stated.

An American Airlines jet flying from Denver to Dallas on Wednesday (May 8) diverted to Pueblo Memorial Airport (PUB) when a burning smell was detected in the cabin.

Pueblo Fire spokesperson Woody Percival said that emergency crews unloaded the passengers on the runway and towed AA Flight 880, an MD-80. to the terminal area. Percival said that he had no specifics about the cause of the burning smell.

A quick search of FAA online files tonight (May 9) found no incident report.  MCDonnell-Douglas (MD) Model 80 series aircraft were first built over 20 years ago. MD design drawings and engineering data are kept now by Boeing.  American Airlines keeps maintenance records for their fleet by serial number and presumably both the airline and the FAA have incident reports on file.  But don't expect a report any time soon.  FAA is pretty short-handed or say they are due to budget cuts and priorities under the sequester.

A United Airlines jet made an emergency landing at Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) Wednesday July 3, 2013 after the crew reported a smell of smoke on board United Airlines flight 4495 from Savannah, Georgia to Newark, New Jersey. The aircraft was 50-seat regional jet.

It was the second emergency landing at RDU Wednesday. Earlier in the day, a small corporate jet made an emergency landing when it lost power in an engine.
