- An American Airlines flight headed to Punta Cana Wednesday had to turn around and head back to Charlotte-Douglas International Airport due to an "odor". 

Flight 1965 reported an "odor" in the cabin and promptly headed back to Charlotte. The flight had taken off around 11:43 a.m. Wednesday morning before deciding to turn around. 

The plane is an A330-200 carrying 183 passengers and a ten member crew.
