Woman burning matches to hide her body odor forces flight change
(12/05/06 - NASHVILLE, TN) - A flight headed to Dallas-Fort Worth was diverted in Nashville on Monday after passengers reported the smell of burning matches, which officials said came from a woman trying to hide body odor.
The 99 passengers and five crew members were evacuated from the American Airlines plane after it landed around 6:40 a.m., 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 carryon 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.
American Airlines, a unit of Fort Worth, Texas-based AMR Corp., has a main hub at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.
