Two AA departures from RDU to DFW returned to RDU after takeoff due to mechanical issues. Flight 1477, the 0640am departure returned and eventually left for DFW at 1430. No reason for return mentioned in Sabre other than mechanical. Then Flight 1705, the 1530 departure returned and finally redeparted due to a "BURNING SMELL" at 1902. Not a good day to be an RDU agent! Sure hope that none of the original pax on 1477 were booked on 1705 and then returned to land twice!!

Would you believe..... BOTH acft reported "odor" that smelled like "burning wood" when applying power for takeoff? Sad, but true. Looks like both planes are being scheduled for engine & APU "wash" jobs as well as AC pack filter replacements and whatever else is on "card # (whatever it is)."

Wow, would you also believe that we departed RDU early that morning and had the same thing happen in a RJ. The smell stopped a few minutes after departure and we continued on to the destination. There has been a ton of pollen in the air, maybe putting that much of it through the engine creates the burning smell through the cabin air system?

There was a similar incident like this one in BHM yesterday. The MD83 is still there.

Here in the Raleigh area we are severely inundated with pine pollen. I wonder whether pollen smells like wood when burned? Would not surprise me at all!

I was in an AA 757 a bit back taking off out of Costa Rica heading to DFW.
Right after the gear came up, the plane smelled like it was on fire.
Like an electrical fire.
I got pretty nervous for awhile, but it cleared up after we hit the cloud layer.

Is this happening with other airlines besides AA? I'm sure it's a seasonal thing but goodness people are only mentioning AA on here.

Seems likely. The pollen here in BHM is filling the air and causing a sickly yellow haze to fill the valleys.

I just thought the same thing, and same with RDU. What are the chances it is just that time of year?



First class or no class...

Same thing happened again this morning (no return, but had the smell) in a different a/c. I'm convinced that the pollen is to blame for the smell. When we spool up the engines for takeoff we suck some massive amounts of air through the engines.

I'm a pilot for ASA and we departed Atlanta today and got a burning odor right after takeoff also. We continued to climb out of ATL. Once we got high enough (4-5K) the smell went away. Definitly due to the massive amount of pollen in the air.
