Five crew members of a US Airways flight were rushed to a hospital Tuesday night because of an unknown odor on the plane.

Sorry, that was me. Next time I'll avoid having curry the night before my flight.

Did they accidentally put food on the plane?

With airports having more and more exotic or unusual restaurants (Philly has a Chickie & Pete's right at the gate), I'm surprised this doesn't happen more often. I wouldn't want to sit next to someone who's just downed 3 or 4 Yuenglings and a big plate of crabfries and shrimp.

The real news here is that apparently US airways has some planes that don't smell like crap.

Especially if the wind is from the northeast, there's a sewage treatment right next to the airport. I learned to hold my breath for a mile when I had to drive past that stank on I-95 everyday.

To be even more fair, most of what you smell in Philly and (southern) NJ is probably wafting up from Baltimore. You can actually smell Baltimore coming from miles away if you're heading south on 95.

/for some reason it's not quite as pungent heading back home.

I get what you're saying, but the first and one of the few times I went to Philly there was an awful smell in the air which I found out later that day was because a factory across the border farked up.
/so personal experience was the factor there.

The Philadelphia airport is horrible. I know people who will fly through any airport in the region except that one.

My worst experience was coming in on a late night international flight. After getting through customs, there were no signs indicating where to find connecting flights. There was nobody there. I eventually wandered out of a (totally unmanned!) security checkpoint and into what turned out to be the check-in lobby. After briefly considering sneaking back in through the unmanned security checkpoint, I tried to get screened through the regular departure security, but it had been shut down for the night. I had to spend the night in a hotel to catch a new connection the next morning.

Yeah good old PHL, 'Come for the crappy food. Stay for the flooded restrooms and overflowing trashbins.'

As a former resident, I can say that there are areas of Philly that are nice. However Center City still has it's challenges and that's why it has the nickname Filthadelphia.

Now in terms of food, nothing beats a good cheese steak from Pats.

How long since you've been back? CC is a lot cleaner now than it used to be. Litter-wise, I mean. As with any other large city it still has it's share of 'bums' but nothing like it did ten years ago or so.

Oh and now ya did it. You may have just started a Pats/Genos steak thread-jack. :-)

Meanwhile, I prefer "Big Johns" on 70 in Cherry Hill. (NJ)

Any cheesesteak from anywhere else in Philly beats either of those hack tourist traps.

Flew in on American, train to hotel across the street from the Hard Rock. Don't remember the name of the hotel. Went to a science teacher convention with my wife. Toured the city and an aluminum mine and Amish country. It was a hell of a week.

/there are some smokin' hot women promoting things at a science teacher convention

Got a cheesesteak from a little silver box "restaurant" somewhere while on a bus tour. It was pretty damn tasty.

Best food I ever had in-flight was on a Caribbean Airlines over-nighter from Toronto to Port-of-Spain, Trinidad. Yum-yum-yummy hot chicken sandwich (at no extra cost!).

Too bad the seats on the plane were like a stone bench...

probably for the best as your wife was with you. Unless she is into that sort of thing, in which case that totally sucks.

Once you get away from the mass produced tourist attractions of Pat's and Genos, you'll find local place where you can sit on stools facing the flat top. The cook will start with a hunk of steak, some onions, etc... Clang, Clang, Clang, Clang....it goes on for several minutes as he chops and flips the meat and onions eventually getting everything together has he scoops it on to your roll.

That's the real Philly experience.
