...........ask any cabin attendant male or female about 'crop dusting' the passengers.
As funny as this is, I flew Iberia coming and going from Madrid to Malabo, Equatorial Guinea. Very long flight for a little A319. On each leg, someone must have been in some terrible gastrointestinal distress. The the level of flatulence released into the passenger cabin was on a cosmic-event level. A literal supernova of a discharge. The flight attendants were forced to raid the duty-free cart and spray perfume (wish they had duty free Febreeze). Don't know what the offender ate, but that substance should be banned from the planet, lest we accelerate climate change even faster.
LOL............"supernova of a discharge"
Damnit...I have coffee all over my shirt now....
Sounds like it was a good thing that smoking was banned on flights then..cosmic-level event would take on a whole new meaning, unfortunately.
Back in April, Spirit Airlines was in the news over a Fart - "Spirit Airlines flight grounded over 'unknown odor,' 7 taken to hospital: report" - https://www.foxnews.com/travel/spirit-flight-grounded-unknown-odor-passengers-hospital-report - Several people onboard a Spirit Airlines flight were reportedly taken to the hospital after the plane was forced to land due to an “unknown odor,” officials confirmed to local outlets.
I have a former flight attendant friend who got written up once for excessive "discharge". I don't know if it qualified as a supernova event though.
