Air Canada Flight Delayed Due to Smell in Cabin

Air Canada flight attendants vacated the cabin of flight AC139 when they smelled a terrible odor in the cabin and vacated the plane.  The smell was one that indicates oil in the ventilation system and they were concerned for their safety.  However, Air Canada spokeswoman, Angela Mah, said that this would not compromise the safe operation of the flight.  The flight was scheduled to depart from Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport at 1:00 pm, on its way to Vancouver.


The flight did not depart until 4:18 pm, arriving in Vancouver at 6:30 pm Vancouver time, three and a half hours later than the scheduled 3:00 pm arrival.  Once the aircraft was cleared for flight by the maintenance crew and pilots, they had to wait for the four flight attendants, three of whom were replaced.  Mah would not comment on whether they would not come back for safety reasons, but said they would only operate a flight that was proven to be safe.
