Second JetBlue flight diverted to Buffalo because of cockpit odor

A second JetBlue flight was diverted to Buffalo on Wednesday night because of an odor in the cockpit.

JetBlue Flight 497 from Boston to Seattle landed at Buffalo Niagara International Airport just before 9:30 p.m., the airline said in a statement.

The flight was diverted “out of an abundance of caution following reports of an electrical odor in the cockpit.”

Earlier Wednesday, JetBlue Flight 1012 from Chicago to Boston landed at the airport at 11:45 a.m. because of smell of smoke in the cockpit.

That flight also was diverted “out of an abundance of caution,” an airline spokesman said.
