A Spirit Airlines Airbus A320-200, registration N622NK performing flight NK-866 from Los Angeles,CA to Dallas Ft. Worth,TX (USA) with 94 people on board, was enroute at FL370 about 190nm northwest of Lubbock,TX (USA) when the crew decided to divert to Lubbock due to a foul odour on board of the aircraft. The aircraft landed safely in Lubbock about 35 minutes later.

A replacement Airbus A320-200 registration N625NK reached Dallas with a delay of 7 hours.

The airline reported the aircraft diverted out of abundance of caution after a foul non-toxic odour, believed to be associated with the air conditioning system, possibly air conditioning filters, was noticed on board. There were no injuries, nobody required medical attentation.
