Plane makes emergency landing after passenger 'passes gas'

The American Airlines plane landed at 4pm local time, and a subsequent investigation by airport officials determined that a passenger had "passed gas", reported the Charlotte Observer.

In January a year ago, one flier felt compelled to pass the flight attendant a note suggesting they make a tannoy announcement enquiring into the health of a fellow traveller because of the noxious fumes being emitted from their person. Yes, you read that right. According to the station, a Raleigh-Durham International Airport spokesperson said the odor was from a passenger who "passed gas". The authorities of the flight termed the decision as a medical call and did not answer any further.

WNCN-TV reported Sunday that passengers had to be evacuated from a flight at Raleigh-Durham International Airport after experiencing headaches and nausea spurred by a foul-smelling odor in the cabin.

American Airlines, however, said the smell was due to a mechanical issue.
