A new Lufthansa A320-200 from Stockholm to Frankfurt diverted to Copenhagen last week when passengers detected a strange odor on board. The Telegraph reports that “fearing for the aircraft’s safety, the Lufthansa crew opted to divert to the Danish capital, landing 15 minutes later, and the 129 passengers on board were rebooked onto alternative flights. However, a check by maintenance staff determined that the odour had originated from a recently installed carpet.”

This isn’t the first strange diversion over the last twelve months. Others have included a pilot wanting to make a stop for her favorite food, “explicit” in-flight movies, and an out of control bachelor party. More details on these in the Telegraph
