Delta B763 at New York on Aug 10th 2022, odour on the aircraft
Last Update: August 13, 2022 / 10:12:52 GMT/Zulu time
Passengers reported they boarded the aircraft but then had to wait for about 2.5 hours with doors closed while two different mechanical issues were being resolved. After takeoff they almost instantly felt dizzy, a passenger overheard a flight attendant reporting "fumes in the cabin" to the cockpit and then they were advised they'd be returning to JFK. Touch down was very hard, a tyre blew on touch down. After they arrived at the gate flight attendants told the passengers showing symptoms they'd be checked out by paramedics. Ultimately the flight was cancelled and they were rebooked onto the following day.
Other passengers reported they were not aware of any odour on board, they only heard the flight crew tell the flight attendants to take their seats as they were landing soon.
