Alaska Airlines Flight Diversion Leads to a 30-Hour Nightmare for Passengers
January 08, 2019 / AviationPros
Alaska Airlines faced a furious reaction from outraged passengers Monday following a weekend transcontinental flight that turned into a 30-hour nightmare journey. Passengers boarded Alaska nonstop flight 1367 from Boston to Los Angeles on Saturday at 6 p.m. and waited almost two hours on the ground before takeoff in an uncomfortably hot cabin. Then just 90 minutes into the flight, they were diverted because of an electrical burning smell to Buffalo Niagara International Airport in New York. There, they spent hours through the night confined in a waiting area, unable to leave the airport and given no information as to what was happening.
