OKLAHOMA CITY -- Continental Airlines flight 216 from Houston to Minneapolis was diverted to Oklahoma City Thursday morning after flight attendants smelled smoke in the galley.
Will Rogers World Airport spokeswoman Karen Carney said the Boeing 737, carrying 75 people, landed without injury.
Carney said airport and Oklahoma City firefighters found no evidence of fire inside the plane. She also said maintenance workers at the airport now believe the odor was caused by a cleaning fluid in the galley.
Carney said officials with Houston-based Continental are now examining the plane to determine if it's safe to continue the flight. But they've summoned another jet in case problems are found.
She said if the second jet is used, it could carry about 50 people and the remaining passengers would be booked on other Continental flights from Oklahoma City to Minneapolis.
