"There was something wrong with the plane and it was obvious because it was filling with smoke," said an American Airlines passenger.

An American Airlines flight to Honolulu experienced scary moments, as a smoky smell was reported in the cabin and cockpit.

Firefighters were on-hand to help passengers, as they slid down emergency chutes aboard the plane.
