According to online flight data, a Condor Boeing 767-300 traveling from the Azores to Florida diverted to Bermuda on Wednesday evening [June 26] after the crew reported a “light electrical smell” on board.

They said there was no visible haze, and they requested to divert to Bermuda as a precaution. The aircraft landed safely on Bermuda’s runway, and was able to continue the journey to Florida after some time on the ground.

    Bermuda has had a few planes divert here recently.

      Indeed. Between fuel, landing fees, hotel stays and other income,one has to wonder how much unexpected revenue is being generated. Would be interesting to know.

    I was on that airplane. What they neglected to tell you was that the airplane left Frankfurt the day before, had an emergency landing in the Azores, passengers overnighted, next day, they had a second airplane – THAT was the one that had the diversion to Bermuda, allegedly because of blocked filters that had to be either cleaned or replaced, and then the airplane landed in Miami, not Fort Lauderdale, because the repairs took so long that Lauderdale Customs were closed. Finally got to Miami at 4 a.m. Have a serious feeling that Condor may be cutting back on maintenance costs which, of course, means cutting back on passenger safety and convenience.
