According to the station, a Raleigh-Durham International Airport spokesperson said the odour was from a passenger who “passed gas.”

 
American Airlines spokesman Ross Feinstein refuted the “passed gas” claim late Sunday, AP reported.

 
Media reported that passengers were “forced” from a flight at Raleigh-Durham International Airport after experiencing headaches and nausea spurred by a foul-smelling odour in the cabin.

 
“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.

 
In another statement, the airport confirmed that the flight was never evacuated. According to the airline, a medical call for people affected by the scent came in after the plane deplaned.

“Plane was not evacuated. Medical call for persons affected by an odor came in after plane deplaned normally.”
