Nauseating Nigerian Flight

February 23, 2010

in Odor Stories

Nothing in the world smells worse than any flight to or from Nigeria. After 4 years of back and forth action between Lagos, Nigeria and London, I began to find my gate not by number but by stench. I understand that different countries have different levels of acceptable hygeine, but… it takes weeks or months of not washing your body or clothing to build a stink like that one.

I do believe the worst job as an air flight attendant would have to be getting assigned that flight on a regular basis. Four years back and forth for me, and every single time that stench.

I know what you mean! Air Zimbabwe is the same, as is Air Congo and Air Zambia. I wonder why?……..;]

I have to say this is pretty ignorant. I have had to fly all over Africa the past 3 years since moving from North America and on your average flight there is no more "stink" present than on your average flight from Houston to Atlanta.
