Airplane Crew Claims They Were Affected By Somebody Farting On Their Flight

There’s a special place in hell for passengers who repeatedly drop ass on an airplane, and it’s likely in the general vicinity of those idiots who are still reclining their seats in the economy cabin.

And apparently one passenger’s ass biscuits were so putrid on a flight yesterday that several crew members needed to be seen by paramedics after the plane landed.

According to Fox Carolina, three American Airlines crew members who arrived at Raleigh-Durham International Airport from Charlotte Sunday afternoon were met by EMS personnel after complaining of headaches and eye irritation they believed were caused by a passenger’s wicked farts.

The crew was checked out in Terminal 2, but thankfully, none of them had to be transported to the hospital.

While the crew thought it was somebody’s gnarly farts, American Airlines officials gave a different reason for the “odor that had been described as flatulence.”

“We did have an aircraft from Charlotte to RDU this afternoon, that landed at 2:19 p.m. ET, and arrived the gate at 2:21 p.m. ET, that is currently out of service for an actual mechanical issue – an odor in the cabin,” American Airlines said in a statement. “But it is not due to ‘passed gas’ as mentioned.”

Yup, that’s a PR professional having to deny that his client’s passengers don’t have headache-inducing farts. And on a Sunday night, nonetheless.
