A Delta Airlines McDonnell Douglas MD-88, registration N910DL performing flight DL-2028 from Fort Lauderdale,FL to New York La Guardia,NY (USA) with 89 people on board, was enroute at FL350 about 150nm southeast of Charleston,SC (USA) when smoke in the cabin prompted the crew to divert to Charleston for a safe landing on runway 33 about 30 minutes later.

A replacement MD-88 reached New York with a delay of 4 hours.

Passengers reported that it appeared the smoke was coming from the air conditioning system, white coloured haze substantially reduced the visibility in the cabin. The pilots announced that obviously engine oil was getting into the air conditioning system causing the smoke, the affected engine was shut down.
