Last Update: September 20, 2022 / 18:55:40 GMT/Zulu time
Massachusetts Police reported the flight was carrying 326 people, the crew reported smoke in the cockpit and was wearing their oxygen masks while diverting to Boston. The aircraft landed without further incident.
The airline reported a defective coffeemaker in the first class galley caused the diversion. The origin of the odour could not be identified in flight prompting the diversion to Boston. Mechanics subsequently identified the coffeemaker as source.
On Sep 20th 2022 the Canadian TSB reported: "While in cruise flight, the cabin crew reported an electrical smell with light smoke in the forward galley to the flight crew. The flight crew declared an emergency and initiated a diversion to Boston Logan International Airport (KBOS) where the aircraft landed without further incident. Maintenance personnel conducted an inspection of the aircraft and identified an espresso machine in the forward galley as being the source of the electrical smell and smoke."
