An electrical fire odor forced an American Airlines flight, reportedly carrying a Hollywood star, to return to its gate at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport on Monday.
According to airline representative Matt Miller, American Flight 2421 returned to the gate at 10:30 a.m. because of the smell.
Miller said the Boeing 767 carrying 211 people en route to Los Angeles was heading to the runway when the odor was detected and the plane turned back.
TMZ reported that television and movie star Ashley Olsen was on board.
By 1:30 p.m., all passengers were placed on a different flight that took off to LAX, Miller said.
However, he said, American had not yet located the source of the smell on the original jet.
