A Delta Airlines Boeing 767-300, registration N175DN performing flight DL-563 from New York JFK,NY (USA) to Los Angeles,CA (USA), was climbing out of New York's runway 22R when the crew requested to level off at 4000 feet due to an issue, upon query by ATC whether they could climb any further affirmed and were cleared to climb to 17,000 feet, but then advised they'd stop the climb around 6000 feet due to a smoke indication in the cabin, shortly afterwards correcting to report an odour on board of the aircraft. The crew decided to return to New York's JFK Airport for a landing on runway 22L without further incident about 20 minutes after departure. A number of passengers reported feeling dizzy and were checked by paramedics with no further consequences known.

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.
