That is the most recent ex-TWA addition to the 757 fleet as I recall from the tail#

Quoting jbmitt (Reply 1):

I don't believe it's an ex-TWA aircraft, but it only entered service with DL two months ago.

It sounded like they had the masks on, so I'd guess smoke in the cabin or cockpit.

The flight returned because of a burning smell in the cabin.

It arrived about 8pm and was scheduled to depart again at 11:30pm (after an equipment swap), but the flight canceled anyway because they were unable to secure a replacement crew after the original crew timed out.
