Someone on an American Airlines plane "passed gas" Sunday afternoon, causing passengers to become sick and forcing everyone to be removed from the jet.
American Airlines officials, however, later said that a plane had an odor issue but denied it was because of "passed gas".
According to WNCN.com, the plane landed at the airport in Raleigh on Sunday when the incident was reported. In a statement, an official said that a plane at RDU had been taken out of service due to a bad odour but denied that this was a outcome of "passed gas".
Raleigh-Durham International Airport has not identified the flight, where it was from or where it was headed.
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. "But It is not due to "passed gas" as mentioned".
Right now the plane is out of commission until maintenance crews can figure out the cause.
