    A commercial flight was diverted to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport Saturday night after people on board smelled an odor in the cabin, officials say.

    Frontier Airlines flight 1433 departed Orlando at 6:58 p.m. EST and landed safely D/FW at 9:00 p.m. CST, according to Jonathan Freed, director of corporate communications for the airlines. The flight's scheduled destination was Oklahoma City.

    Freed said the diversion was cautionary, and that anyone on board who requested medical attention would receive it.
