ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- Two Alaska Airlines attendants have been treated and released from an Anchorage hospital after feeling ill during a flight Sunday.

The Anchorage Daily News says (http://bit.ly/pjy8BS) the two attendants working in the rear cabin felt nauseous and were short of breath on the evening flight from Portland, Ore., to Anchorage.

They reportedly felt better by the time the plane landed. Medics checked several other passengers in the rear of the plane, but no one else had the same symptoms.

Alaska Airlines spokesman Paul McElroy says the plane was inspected, air vents cleaned and filters changed in the back of the plane.

He says they don't know the cause but are monitoring the plane, which is back in service.

There were 141 passengers and five crew members on Flight 137 Sunday.
