Excessively Farting Passenger Causes Plane Flight to Turn Around

A flight was reportedly delayed after an excessively gassy passenger had to be removed.

The person farting so much, the plane had to turn around.

We’re not kidding.

Fart or Flight

People reported, “The Jan. 14 incident was documented by Texas-based reddit user lamgalatx, who wrote about the smelly situation on an American Airlines flight from Phoenix to Austin. American Airlines did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.”

“I was seated near the row where this situation occurred,’ the passenger recalled in the r/Austin subreddit. While the airplane was still at the gate, the documentarian says they saw and heard an ‘audibly disgruntled’ and ‘maybe hungover’ man. He reportedly exclaimed, ‘You thought that was rude? Well how about this smell,“ and proceeded to loudly pass gas.”

The story continued:

“[I don’t know] what provoked that comment, and while kinda funny to overhear, it was uncalled for especially coming from a grown man on an airplane nonetheless,” the user continued.

But the transgression didn’t end there.

“The man who just purposefully farted moments ago decides to loudly and condescendingly say ‘Yeah, everybody, let’s just eat the smelliest food possible all at the same time,’” the poster wrote, seemingly referring to a scent unrelated to his own actions.

In response, a man in the next row reportedly remarked, “If you don’t like it you can fly private,” to which the gassy passenger replied, “That’s so f—ing rude.”

Another passenger chimed in, “I think we’d all agree you’re the rude one here,’” the witness added.

The plane, which had not taken off yet, eventually had to turn around.

And the gassy passenger was removed.

“He gets up, grabs his bag and quietly exits the plane,” the Reddit commenter said. “We all breathed a sigh of relief when he was removed, I think most people were on edge about what he may say or do next. The trip was only delayed by 15-30 minutes, so all in all I think American handled it swiftly.”

We’ve all had experiences when traveling.

But probably nothing like this trip.
