The passengers only arrived home early Saturday morning. It was not immediately clear whether the same plane was repaired and given the green-light to proceed to Trinidad and then Guyana.
The decision to land at the airport on Bermuda, a British Overseas Territory, followed what appeared to be smoke in the cabin, a source said. The flight departed New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport early Friday morning.
“It had to make an emergency landing in Bermuda due to smoke in the cabin; all passengers were placed in a hotel. No injury was reported,” said one source familiar with the flight.
