Default Southwest WN 1147 diversion?

Very little news about this. Southwest 1147 from MCO - HOU diverted to MSY on April 1st. Southwest quoted saying it was a gasper fan?

Default I was a passenger on 1147

Yes, they are saying it was gasper fan. but it was treated as full on Emergency including rapid descent and brace positions. They definitely thought it was something serious.

Only story I have seen is here: Aero-News Network: The Aviation and Aerospace World's Daily/Real-Time News and Information Service

SWA is basically treating it like it was nothing more than a diversion, but all passengers and crew were really quite upset. Flight crew did a great job though.

Yeah, If I was on a -300 I'd be pretty spring-loaded to dump the cabin and divert, at least until they figure this out.

What I would like to know is if it is somehow related to this flight. Same electrical fire smell.
