Flatulence Leads To Emergency Landing In Nashville

Insert Joke Here

An American Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing this week after a female passenger lit a match onboard. Why did she do it? Authorities say she was trying to disguise the smell of... well, flatulence.

An unspecified medical condition apparently caused the woman to pass an abundant amount of gas while on the flight to Dallas... but passengers say all they could smell was the sulfur from the burning match. So, the match did its job.

No matter how well-intentioned the woman's motives may have been, though, it's still a no-no to light a match on a commercial airliner. The TSA allows up to four cardboard matchbooks in carry-on luggage or on a person's self, but they can't be lit.

"It was determined that she was trying to conceal body odor," said Lynne Lowrance of the Nashville Airport Authority to the Associated Press. Lowrance added the woman had "no malicious intent but had struck matches which is against [Transport Security Administration] rules."

The plane was forced to divert to Nashville, where all 104 persons onboard the plane were led off, and rescreened.

The flight took off a few hours later... but the woman, who wasn't charged in the incident, still wasn't allowed back on the plane.
