An Uruguayan airline says that passengers on an international flight had to be evacuated from planes twice on the same trip.
The Pluna airline says in a statement that passengers had boarded a flight from Montevideo from Buenos Aires early Wednesday, but had to disembark when a technical problem involving the fuel system was found. Firefighters also were summoned.
Passengers were put aboard another plane, but the pilot aborted his takeoff because of a strange smell. The airline says the odor may have resulted from recent maintenance.
Finally the passengers were put aboard another flight and reached their destination.
