A SAS Scandinavian Airlines Airbus A321-200, registration OY-KBF performing flight SK-502 from London Heathrow,EN (UK) to Copenhagen (Denmark), was enroute when smell of smoke was briefly observed on board. A mechanic on board found no trace of fire. The crew continued to Copenhagen for a safe landing.
Denmark's Havarikommission released a brief report in Danish stating, that after landing a fire extinguisher in a toilet's waste bin was found discharged. It was not possible to determine what triggered the fire extinguisher, however it had been seen that passengers did not obey to the no-smoking sign and disposed remains of cigarettes, not properly extinguished, into the toilet's waste bin.
