Seven American Airlines flight attendants went to the hospital early this morning after paramedics at Orlando International Airport responded to their jetliner because of a report of possible toxic fumes.
The incident happened aboard Flight 1868 from Charlotte to Orlando,according to airport spokeswoman Carolyn Fennell.
The flight attendants were checked by airport paramedics in the terminal near baggage claim, Fennell said, then were taken by ambulance to Florida Hospital East.
They complained of headaches and were discharged from the hospital about 6:30 a.m., said airline spokeswoman Alexis Aran Coello.
It had landed just before midnight, carrying a crew of 89 passengers and 10 crew members, she said.
The cockpit crew did not get medical attention, she said. Neither did passengers.
An eighth flight attendant initially asked to go to the hospital but got tired waiting, Aran Coello said, and simply went to a hotel.
