An American Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing Monday morning after a passenger lit a match to disguise the scent of flatulence, authorities said.
They go on to say…
The FBI questioned a passenger who admitted she struck the matches in an attempt to conceal a “body odor,” Lowrance said. She had an unspecified medical condition, authorities said.
“It’s humorous in a way but you feel sorry for the individual, as well,” she said. “It’s unusual that someone would go to those measures to cover it up.”
I definitely feel sorry for this old lady (how do I know she’s old? How many younger kids know to light a match?) . It must have been incredibly embarrassing to clear the cabin. Too bad she wasn’t male. A guy would have been proud of the achievement..
The good news; she’s not the first person to smell up a plane.
