No blowing in the wind? People evacuated by American Airplanes after ‘man passes gas’


North Carolina: Passengers on board an American Airlines flight on July 16 were forced to get off after one of them allegedly passed gas.
According to WBTV, the decision to evacuate the passengers was taken after passengers complained of nausea and headache due to the smell.
American Airlines officials admitted that there indeed was an odor issue, but rubbished reports that the reason was because of a passenger passing gas.
Ross Feinstein, a spokesman for the airline, released a statement, in which he admitted that the aircraft was out of service, but maintained the reason was a technical snag.
“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 – and odor in the cabin. But it is not due to ‘passed gas’ as mentioned,” he said.
