An American Airlines Boeing 787-8, registration N880BJ performing flight AA-754 from Philadelphia,PA (USA) to Paris Charles de Gaulle (France), was enroute at FL410 about 180nm east of St. John's,NL (Canada) when the crew detected fumes, an epoxy like odour in the area of the doors 2R and 3R, which worsened. The crew requested to return to Philadelphia due to a mechanical issue. Cabin crew checked overhead lockers and lavatories but could not identify the source of the fumes. When the fumes began to permeate the entire aircraft, the flight crew declared emergency and diverted to Bangor,ME (USA), where the aircraft landed safely about 80 minutes after the decision to return to Philadelphia.

The Canadian TSB reported: "In KBGR contract maintenance could not determine the source of the fumes. A disinfectant cleaning was completed in the cabin between seat rows 10 thru 19. During the maintenance ferry flight to KPHL the odour was again present in the cabin between rows 10 and 19. Maintenance personnel in KPHL replaced the lower recirculation fan and both the left and right air purification filters and the aircraft was returned to service."
