CLEVELAND -- A United Airlines flight from New York to Los Angeles was diverted to Cleveland Sunday because of an electrical smell, causing a celebrity passenger to tweet that perhaps she should be on the comedy "Hot in Cleveland."
Actress Dana Delany was reportedly on Flight 132 from Kennedy International Airport Sunday when someone reported a smell coming from a cabin.
The plane was diverted to Cleveland at about 5:45 p.m., where airport officials said maintenance workers checked the aircraft but did not find anything.
On her Twitter account, Delaney (@DanaDelany) tweeted:
"Maybe being stranded in Cleveland is a sign that I should be on @hotnclevelandtv. @bettymwhite where are you?"
"Emergency landing on @United in Cleveland. Who's couch can I crash on?!?"
To which local celebrity chef Michael Symon (@chefsymon) tweeted:
"@DanaDelany @united need my address!!..lol"
United Airlines (@United) also responded to Delaney on Twitter, tweeting:
"@DanaDelany Please follow us & DM if you need further assistance. Thanks. ^mb"
There were no injuries. It wasn't immediately known when the plane took off again.
A message left for a Cleveland Hopkins Airport spokesperson was not immediately returned to Channel 3 News.
Delany plays Megan Hunt on the ABC drama series "Body of Proof." She is also known for her voice acting work, most notably as Lois Lane in multiple Superman-related animated series and movies.
