Thomas Cook flight returns to Manchester after burning smell spread through the plane

A flight from Manchester to Los Angeles was diverted back, after burning smell spread through the aircraft.

The Thomas Cook aircraft was operating the flight MT2824 from Manchester International Airport to Los Angeles International Airport today, when a smell of burning spread through the plane, coming from one of the ovens.

For safety reasons the flight was diverted back to Manchester where the fire service boarded the aircraft as part of the safety check and the aircraft was cleared to fly again, but the crew is unable to operate the route without exceeding their maximum legal operating hours.

For that reason, Thomas Cook Airlines will provide accommodation to passengers who would like and the flight will depart tomorrow as soon as possible.
