Lightning struck a JetBlue plane this morning as it neared the New York City area.
The Airbus A320 en route from Phoenix to John F. Kennedy airport was carrying 151 passengers, none of whom were injured.
Smoke could be smelled in the cabin, and the flight crew requested that emergency vehicles meet the plane upon landing at JFK, according to Alex Headrick, a spokesperson for the airline.
The plane reached the gate at 7:22 a.m and is now being inspected by maintenance crews.
The carrier is not planning major changes to its schedule as a result of the strike, but is warning passengers to plan for delays as a result of thunderstorms in the area.
