A Jetblue Embraer ERJ-190, registration N187JB performing flight B6-913 from Westchester, NY to Fort Lauderdale, FL (USA) with 98 passengers and 4 crew, was enroute at FL380 about 110nm north of Charleston, SC (USA) when the crew donned their oxygen masks, reported smoke in the cockpit and diverted to Charleston for a safe landing about 20 minutes later. The aircraft vacated the runway, stopped just past the hold short line and was evacuated via slides. There were no injuries. A replacement Embraer ERJ-190 registration N307JB was dispatched to Charleston, resumed the flight and reached Fort Lauderdale with a delay of 6.5 hours.
