    Plane diverted after passengers smell burning matches


    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- An American Airline flight bound for Dallas-Fort Worth was diverted in Nashville after passengers reported smelling burning matches.

    Airport officials had 99 passengers and five crew members disembark the plane after it landed around 6:40 a.m. Monday, Nashville Airport Authority spokeswoman Lynne Lowrance said.

    The plane, which was en route from Reagan National Airport in Washington, was searched and luggage was screened.

    Matches were found in the seat of one passenger, who was detained and questioned by the FBI. The matches were safety matches allowed in carry-on luggage under Transportation Security Administration rules.

    "It turned out she was trying to conceal body odor," Lowrance said.

    The woman, who was not identified, was released without being charged, but was not allowed back on an American Airlines flight.

    The remaining passengers were screened, and the plane resumed its flight around 10:30 a.m.

    I heard one report that said "foul-smelling gas" (i.e., her farts stank like a dead skunk), but most reports I've heard did say "body odor"

    I'd have blamed it on the guy next to me. Either that or found a new use for dryer sheets.

    Oh, but of course. That's what I do whenever I'm stinky after a workout. Forget those conventional remedies like deodorant and a shower... Just light a match and it will be better in seconds.

    This technique belongs in an infomercial
