Uruguayan airline Pluna has confirmed that passengers on an international flight had to be evacuated from planes twice on the same trip. Passengers boarded a flight from Montevideo from Buenos Aires early Wednesday, but had to disembark when a technical problem involving the fuel system was found. Firefighters also were summoned. The passengers were put aboard another plane, but the pilot aborted his takeoff because of a strange smell. The airline says the odor may have resulted from recent maintenance. Finally the passengers were put aboard another flight and reached their destination.
