An engine-related issue forced an Iberia Airways flight en route to Madrid to make an emergency landing at Logan Airport in Boston.
According to the Boston Globe, an Iberia spokeswoman says the plane landed without incident.
The flight originated Tuesday around 9:15 p.m. at John F. Kennedy International Airport.
The spokeswoman said about 90 minutes into the flight, crew members noticed an engine-related issue.
The plane landed safely in Boston.
Melissa Miller, of New York, says she was on the flight and passengers "knew something was up" when a smoke- and gas-like odor filled the cabin.
Miller said passengers were bussed back to New York to rebook flights.
There were no injuries to any of the 265 passengers.
Massport and FAA officials did not respond to requests for comment.
AP wire services helped contribute to this report.
