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."
ActressDana 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.
