Emergency landing AA3364

Smoke in the cabin; instead of Montreal we are in Albany.
No fire to be seen, they are looking at the nose gear.

Looks like a few media outlets picked up on this:

Sounds like another plane is coming to get you

edit: looks like the ferry arrived:

I don't think there are any Duty Free outlets in ALB, hopefully you took care of that in LGA.

...glad all is well....and that AA is fairly rapidly getting another plane to you....

....how scary was it? How much info was announced to pax while in the air? To me, any problems seem scarier when on small RJs....likely the psychology of small spaces, more engine noises and worry about less experienced crew..... best wishes!

I'm sure you will get points or voucher for this, but that is very thoughtful on AA's part to buy Pizza when there was no obligation to do so! ^

Uh, that's the track of the *diverted* flight, i.e. the one that the OP was on.

BTW, it's not AA mainline, it's an Eagle flight.

Here is the replacement flight: https://flightaware.com/live/flight/EGF9811

Landed at 19:34, so it looks like the revised 20:50 ETA will work just fine.
