Odor Stories

I had some awful flights in the past but nothing ever like the one I was on returning home from Cuba. Two years ago after a great two weeks in the sun, I was seated on the plane about 3 rows behind a lady in her early 70s when all of a sudden this horrid […]

Just came back from flight from Boston to Tampa. I have 3 kids. I was sitting next to a father and his 3 year old, and behind us was the mother and an infant. We get airborne and I start smelling poo. I turn to the father and say, “Gosh something smells like poop on […]

My husband and I were taking a flight from Bucharest to Amsterdam and it was very early for us. Neither of us had gotten much sleep and we were both worn out from a long trip and a long day of connecting flights ahead of us. Because it was our honeymoon, my husband let me […]

One memorable flight from hell started like this… I began my journey in Atlanta and was traveling back home to Los Angeles. After hours of delays the plane took off from Atlanta and soon we were on the ground in Memphis. The first part of the flight was uneventful. The flight from Memphis to LA […]

I was on a Virgin Airlines flight from Tokyo to London back in ’99. At first I had this wonderful aisle seat and a sweet FA who had this wonderful British accent. I chatted things up for a bit with her and was then greeted by a Senior FA (an old hag BTW) who asked […]

Waiting in the Charleston West Virginia airport boarding lounge I noticed a tall bearded man talking loudly to the TSA personnel. I noticed he had a large stovepipe hat like the kind President Abraham Lincoln wore. Later, seated on the plane, I noticed the same individual approaching my area. He was dressed in a 19th […]

I was flying from Orlando to San Francisco with a layover in Vegas. The plane was coming from Miami with a large, nice family already on board. They were about twelve strong and took up four rows across the aisle from me. There was an assortment of children and adults, and an autistic boy who […]

Took Cathay Pacific back from Hong Kong recently. Was seated in 31B, a middle seat on the left side, between two men, both apparently Chinese (not that it matters). Anyway, during the flight, the guy on the window seat (to my left), starts smelling really bad. Not a pooh smell, but a really funky B.O. […]

Backdoor Explosion

I was on a quick flight from BWI to DTW. We boarded the plane as usual and a man in the row behind me got up to use the lavatory at the rear of the plane. However, I guess he didn’t quite make it onto the toilet. Apparently he covered much of the room with […]

My best friend and I departed San Francisco International Airport on an international flight bound for Germany. We were going to travel throughout Europe. The flight to Germany was hell. It couldn’t get any worse than this folks. We boarded the plane and I sat in my assigned seat. Three young French women trapped me in […]

The Malodorous MD

in Odor Stories

In the Los Angeles LAX airport, there was an odor wafting above the sea of people waiting to board a direct flight from LA to Boston. It just was awful, and I couldn’t identify what it was. I boarded the plane and was seated towards the back of the aircraft. I noticed the odor again […]
