An Alaska Airlines flight en route from Seattle to Las Vegas was diverted to Sacramento International Airport this afternoon after flight attendants reported an electrical smell in the cabin.
Airport spokeswoman Laurie Slothower said Flight 606 landed safely about 4:40 p.m.
Bobbie Egan, media relations manager for the airline, said in an email that contrary to initial reports, no smoke, only an electrical odor, was detected in the cabin. The Boeing 737-800 was carrying 152 passengers and a six-member crew.
Assistant Chief Niko King of the Sacramento Fire Department said a flight attendant complained of irritation from the odor and was treated by paramedics. Slothower said the attendant was treated at the scene and released.
Passengers were taken off the plane and into the terminal. As of about 6:30 p.m., Egan said maintenance crews were still inspecting the plane. Passengers were rebooked on flights departing for Las Vegas at 7 and 9 p.m.
