A Jazz Canadair CRJ-900, registration C-FNJZ performing flight QK-8839 from San Francisco,CA (USA) to Vancouver,BC (Canada) with 71 passengers and 4 crew, was climbing out of San Francisco's runway 01R when the crew declared Mayday reporting smoke on board, stopped the climb at 2000 feet and positioned for an immediate return to runway 28R. The crew reported they were showing smoke in both lavatories and they did smell smoke in the cockpit. The aircraft landed on San Francisco's runway 28R about 6 minutes after departure, turned off the runway and stopped clear of the runway. The aircraft was evacuated.

Ground instructed all aircraft on frequency to hold position advising of an indefinite delay, however, resumed normal operation about 10 minutes after the landing.

On Mar 10th 2020 the Canadian TSB reported one passenger received minor injuries in the evacuation. The crew received forward and aft lavatory smoke indications followed by reports of smoke in the cabin.
