American Airlines Denies Passengers Got Sick From Toxic Farts

American Airlines is denying that one of their planes had to be evacuated after crew members and passengers complained of headaches and eye irritation reportedly from an odor described as flatulence.

The bad odor impacted Flight 1927 from Charlotte to Raleigh, North Carolina on Sunday shortly after it arrived at Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU), WNCN reported.

Officials at RDU called EMS to Terminal 2 to examine crew members who complained about the foul smell. No one was transported to a hospital.

According to the operations log at 3.34pm, crew members ‘gave various descriptions of the smell,’ which seemingly indicted that a person had passed gas.

Around 4.18pm, an RDU representative told WNCN that ‘the odor was described as flatulence.’

But officials with the airliner denied that the the plane had an odor problem due to someone passing gas.

Ross Feinstein, a spokesman for the airline, released a statement that said in part:

‘We did have an aircraft from Charlotte to RDU this afternoon, that landed at 2.19pm ET, and arrived the gate at 2.21pm ET, that is currently out of service for an actual mechanical issue – and odor in the cabin.

But it is not due to ‘passed gas’ as mentioned.’
