SAN FRANCISCO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (KRON) — Two flights made emergency returns to San Francisco International Airport shortly after take-off today.
United Airlines Flight 5064, operated by SkyWest Airlines, left SFO for Calgary, Canada, shortly before noon but returned back roughly 30 minutes later because of a report of a smoke smell in the cabin, duty manager Nancy Parker said.
Another flight headed for Boston, United Airlines Flight 1188 took off from SFO about 11:20 a.m. but quickly turned back because one of the flight attendants fell ill.
The attendant was transported to a hospital but Parker did not know the person’s condition.
No word on what caused the smell of smoke in the cabin.
