Plane diverted after passenger lights matches


#1

Plane enroute from DCA from DFW diverted to BNA after a passenger lit matches.
“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.

Sorry if this has been posted elsewhere; didn’t see it when I searched. Not much worthwhile aviation info here, but a pretty amusing story.
