An American Airlines Airbus A319-100, registration N762US performing flight AA-1146 from Boston,MA to Philadelphia,PA (USA), was climbing out of Boston's runway 22R when the crew requested to level off at 6000 feet reporting they had a compressor stall on one of their engines (CFM56) and there was a brief smell of smoke afterwards, hence they wanted to return to Boston. The crew requested a long final while working 5 or 6 things they had to do. The aircraft landed safely back on runway 22L about 20 minutes after departure.

Passengers reported they saw a streak of flames and some smoke, the captain subsequently announced it was a bird strike.

A replacement Airbus A321-200N registration N467AL is estimated to reach Philadelphia with a delay of about 10 hours.
