UPDATE: TSB Report #A20A0044: N806NW, an Airbus A330-323 aircraft operated by Delta Air Lines, was conducting flight DAL30 from Hartsfield/Jackson Atlanta, GA (KATL) to London/Heathrow, England (EGLL). When in cruise flight, at about 233NM east-southeast of St. John’s, NL (CYYT), the flight crew smelled a wood smoke odour in the cockpit. The flight crew contacted cabin crew members, who confirmed smelling the odour in the cabin as well. The flight crew subsequently declared an emergency, began descending and completed the quick reference handbook (QRH) procedure for smoke and fumes; however, the odour did not dissipate. Following a discussion with company maintenance personnel, the flight crew decided to divert to CYYT, where the flight landed without further incident. Maintenance personnel inspected the cabin, cargo, and avionics compartments and reported no finding of smoke or haze. No faults were recorded by aircraft systems. On October 22, 2020, multiple flights across eastern Canada reported the detection of a smell related to smoke carried aloft at high altitude in Canadian airspace, which originated from ongoing wildfires in Colorado.
