    Weird. Another reason we're not gonna be flying anymore.

    Now for one of my anecdotes (and you can stop here if you don't like them).

    A fellow Captain decided it would be a good joke on his fellow Captains, in a large open office next door, to inflict them with some flatulance. So the night before he ate a bunch of hard boiled eggs, and drank lots of beer.

    Well, it worked. Next day he was farting constantly, and stinking up the shared office. Unfortunately, it wafted into the private office of their boss, a Lt. Colonel. And he was not amused.

    In fact, he was so mad he had the smelly Captain's desk moved out into the hallway. He was incredibly shamed. We had to walk around it, and didn't want to say anything. We knew his career was ruined. His next OER (Officer Efficency Report) would be zeroed by his boss. Scratch one Captain.

    An updated statement from the airport referred to the incident as a “medical call” after the plane deplaned “normally.”

    Passing gas wasnt part of it

    “We did have an aircraft from Charlotte to RDU this afternoon, that landed at 2:19 p.m. ET, and arrived the gate at 2:21 p.m. ET, that is currently out of service for an actual mechanical issue – and odor in the cabin. But it is not due to “passed gas” as mentioned,” Feinstein said.

    Time for the OP to amend the post.
