    An American Airlines plane made an emergency landing in Nashville after passengers reported the smell of sulphur from burning matches.
    The matches were found on the seat of a woman who had attempted to conceal the odour of flatulence with the matches, Nashville airport authorities said.

    All 99 passengers and five crew left the plane while it was searched.

    The woman was questioned by the FBI but released without charge and allowed to board another American Airlines flight.

    "It was determined that she was trying to conceal body odour," said Lynne Lowrance of the Nashville Airport Authority.

    I have heard of "flattery will get you everywhere"

    I have heard of "flattery will get you everywhere"
    but "Flatulence will get you anywhere":tonofbricks:


    "you are now free to move about the cabin"

    "American Airlines somethings special in the air"








    seriously I hope the woman does not have a condition...there are rare cases of people having odor problems that is a condition not under their control.

    More to the point, how did she get on board with matches? I'm not allowed more than 3 oz. of shampoo, but she got matches on board? :laugh:

    When I first read the title of the thread, I thought, man that's some strong gas to knock a flight off course. :laugh:

    Guess she couldn't get any one's support because she wasn't Muslim, Jewish, Black, Arab -- or member of any minority group that would complain of discriminatory practices when a member is asked to leave a plane.

    Just about every food available can lead to the buildup of TMA: eggs, meats, beans, milk, cheese, bread and fish.

    "The odor will vary from time to time in accordance with the patient's diet," Preti said.
