Aer Lingus Airbus A330 being diverted to Daytona Beach after smoke in cockpit

On 8 November, an Aer Lingus UK Airbus A330-300 (registered G-EILA) operated a flight between Orlando, United States and Manchester, United Kingdom. Immediately after takeoff, however, smoke entered the cockpit. The pilots had to divert to Daytona Beach Airport.

The 250 passengers exited the plane and waited in the airport terminal. After about three hours, ground transportation was provided to take the stranded passengers back to Orlando.

Passengers rushed to social media because they received very little information from Aer Lingus.
