Smoky odor brings Delta flight back to JFK

A Delta flight that took off from John F. Kennedy International Airport returned to the airport because of a smoky odor near one of the galleys.

Delta spokesman Paul Skrbec said Flight 268 had taken off Saturday night, headed for Tel Aviv, Israel. The odor became noticeable shortly into the flight and the captain decided to return to JFK in an "abundance of caution."

The 390 passengers on the flight were given accomodations for the night. Skrbec said the flight was rescheduled for Sunday evening.
