PHILADELPHIA — Two crew members and a passenger on an American Airlines plane have been taken to a hospital in Dublin after fumes from spilled cleaning fluid caused an emergency landing.

A spokesman for the airline said Monday that medical personnel met the plane after it landed Monday afternoon.

The spokesman says the two crew members who became ill were treated and released. There’s no immediate word on the passenger.

The plane was flying from London to Philadelphia when it diverted to Dublin because of odor from cleaning fluid that spilled in the galley.

American says the Airbus A330 was carrying 287 passengers and a crew of 12.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
