OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Officials say a Southwest Airlines plane returned to Oakland International Airport just after takeoff after a smell was reported in the cabin and a flight attendant felt sick.

Crew members alerted the airport around 7:22 a.m. Tuesday — about ten minutes after the flight left for Burbank — that they were turning around.
