2 commercial flights diverted to Nashville

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Two commercial airline flights have been diverted to Nashville for different problems.

A Jet Blue flight from Austin, Texas, to Boston made an unscheduled landing Tuesday night at Nashville International Airport after a passenger began having chest pains, according to WTVF-TV ( http://bit.ly/w0unxB ). The passenger was taken to a hospital.

About 30 minutes earlier, a Frontier Airlines flight from Denver to Atlanta had to land after the cockpit crew detected a strange odor. The plane landed safely and the 99 passengers on board were being booked onto different flights.
