United Jet Makes Emergency Landing After Odor Detected

A Boeing 777 operated by United Airlines made an emergency landing today because of a strange odor onboard, the second such incident this month.

United Airlines flight 328 took off from Denver bound for Honolulu, but was forced to land in Salt Lake City Friday afternoon due to an "electrical odor," according to airline spokeswoman Jennifer Dohm.

There were 269 passengers and 10 crew members on board the flight.

"Our passengers deplaned normally, and our maintenance team will inspect the aircraft," Dohm said in an email to ABC News.

Earlier this month, another Boeing 777 operated by United made an emergency landing on the tiny Pacific island of Midway after passengers reported a burning smell.

Dohm said that the two incidents involved different Boeing 777 aircraft.

United did not say when the passengers on Friday's flight would be able continue on to Hawaii.
