An American Airlines plane was evacuated after a fart

In January past year, 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.

Media outlets from the United Kingdom to India were reporting Sunday that an American Airlines flight had to be evacuated after other passengers became sick from smelling an ailing man's gas. Yes, you read that right.

The incident happened when passengers on the flight became ill with nausea and headaches, Fox 8 News reported today, citing a spokesperson with Raleigh-Durham International Airport.

Raleigh-Durham International Airport has not identified the flight, where it was from or where it was headed.

According to the Charlotte Observer, authorities later said that the incident was a "medical call". "But it is not due to "passed gas" as mentioned," said spokesman Ross Feinstein.

"We did take an aircraft out of service for a mechanical issue, an odor in the cabin.No "passed gas" issue". But now the plane is currently out of commission until the time its mechanical issue is solved.
