Burning smell

Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.

Enjoy!!

A flight from Madrid to New York was cruising at FL400 over Canada when the crew noticed a burning smell in the rear of the cabin. The Cabin crew ran to locate the source of the smell. They decided to move the passengers out of their seats and search around the seats. After five minutes of searching, they found a short circuit in the inflight entertainment system of one of the seats. They were able to remove these cables and the smell disappeared.
The pilots thought about diverting, but when the crew found the source of the smell, they continued to New York and landed safely.
