FIVE American Airlines cabin crew members were hospitalised as a precaution upon deplaning from their flight from Philadelphia to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, after staffers smelled a mystery "odour" on-board the aircraft.

"Shortly before landing, crew members complained of an odour on board," a spokeswoman for the carrier told Fox News.
"The aircraft, an Airbus 320 with 137 passengers and a crew of five, landed safely and taxied to the gate. Two pilots and three flight attendants asked to be taken to the hospital as a precaution.
"No passengers requested medical attention. The aircraft is being evaluated by our maintenance team," she said.
