On Friday, we posted about two JetBlue Embraer 190s that made emergency landings due to smoke and fire situations.
In addition to Flight 654, which last Monday made an emergency landing at Kennedy after taking off for Rochester due to smoke in the cabin, and Flight 1781, which made a landing with an engine fire in Nassau, on Friday another Embraer 190 returned to JFK. Flight 63 bound for Tampa returned to JFK after an electrical smell filled the cabin.
All three troubled planes have been taken out of service while the airline looks into the matter, JetBlue said. however, it is most disturbing again that three aircraft operated by the same carrier of the same model had incidents in such a short period.
