Delta B738 near Omaha on Jul 26th 2011, smell of smoke in cabin
A Delta Airlines Boeing 737-800, registration N385DN performing flight DL-1002 (scheduled dep Jul 25th, actual dep Jul 26th) from Salt Lake City, UT to New York JFK, NY (USA) with 159 passengers, was enroute at FL350 about 80nm westsouthwest of Omaha, NE when the crew reported smell of smoke in the cabin and decided to divert to Omaha, where the aircraft landed safely about 17 minutes later.
The cause of the smell is under investigation, a replacement aircraft is being dispatched to Omaha.
Are as usual implying that no other airline in the world diverted because of mechanical problems that day? I would bet that at least one did.From all indications, the maintenance at NW/DL has been better continally since AMFA went on strike.

Sure doesn't read that way. And yes all airlines are having maintenance problems. Working maintenance for an airlines was never a 9 to 5 job. The money made it worth while. Without the money people can do as well else where. If you were to pick up a industry magazine, flip through the pages you'll find article after article about this. Being an AMT is no-longer a good job !
