ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- Two flight attendants working on an Alaska Airlines flight became sick while working in the rear galley of the plane.

The Anchorage Daily News (http://bit.ly/pjy8BS ) says the two reported feeling nauseated and short of breath during a flight Sunday night from Portland to Anchorage.

Airline spokesman Paul McElroy says no one else on the plane reported feeling ill. He says the two flight attendants were taken to the hospital after landing and reported feeling better.

McElroy says mechanics inspected the plane and cleaned air vents and changed filters in the rear. But he says the reason for the illnesses is not known. He says the plane is back in service and the situation is being monitored.
