Fakes news. They said that wasn't the cause.

Ross Feinstein, a spokesman for the airline, released a statement that said in part:

"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."

This. The farking headline was an abject untruth according to the linked story and this was greened? Farking fark wants to be Opposing Views or Buzzfeed now. Going to shiat in a hurry.

On the bright side you can see who read the article and who didn't...
Seems about 5 of us read the article.


Oh I read it, it's just not often I can use the Stimpy searching for his lost fart image.  This thread was as close as the opportunity was going to be.

Fark isn't about truth and the actual news, quite the opposite.  Check out the politics tab to see how far most people are from actual reality.   Almost everybody loves a freak show and this is a good one to have fun at, not take seriously.

Bermuda59: Taco Bell will now be banned from all airports

Ok numbnuts... if you read the URL, you will notice this: "http://fox5sandiego.com/2017/07/16/person-passes-gas-on-american-air​li​nes-plane-forces-all-passengers-off-at-nc-airport/ "
The original headline was "Person Passes Gas on American Airlines Plane, Forces all Passengers Off at NC Airport".  The news agency that this was linked from updated their headline after the airline denied it.

On an unrelated side note... can we stop using the term "Fake News" unless we are making fun of Trump and his followers... maybe Fark can change "Fake News" like they do when you type fark...

burncheese: lack of warmth: On a serious note, do airplanes have air exchange system, to refreshen the air in the pressurized cab? It would seem to me that it would be very possible to do such a thing. I get the airlines don't care about most of their passengers, but to improve first class, it may be worth it.

They do. The engines suck air into the cabin. I don't know much more detail than that though. There's probably someone who can explain it better. Or google.


Pressurization systems constantly pump fresh, outside air into the fuselage. To control the interior pressure, and allow old, stinky air to exit, there is a motorized door called an outflow valvelocated near the tail of the aircraft. It's about the size of a briefcase and located on the side or bottom of the fuselage. Larger aircraft often have two outflow valves. The valves are automatically controlled by the aircraft's pressurization system. If higher pressure is needed inside the cabin, the door closes. To reduce cabin pressure, the door slowly opens, allowing more air to escape. It's one of the simplest systems on an aircraft.
