A BA flight to Dubai had to turn around mid flight last Thursday after a man did an extraordinarily smelly shit in the plane's toilet shortly after take off. At the time, finding the culprit of the unusually pungent poo was the least of the passengers' worries as individuals scrambled to the floor fighting for any remnant of uninfected air.
The New Age Man spoke to Hazel Nutt, a passenger on the flight to Dubai “Smelly doesn’t even come close to describing the odour, if I had to describe it in one word it would be 'heavy'. Luckily, I had a pair of googles in my hand luggage so I was able to see but almost everyone else had red watering eyes.”
Raymond Guffard has been singled out as the individual responsible for the cancelled flight although he has fiercely denied claims it was him. “Whoever smelt it dealt it” said the 54-year-old from London.
Flight staff were alerted to Raymond being the likely perpetrator after he was overheard saying that he didn’t understand what the fuss was about and that he couldn’t smell anything. “There is no way it wasn't him, he was the only one not holding his nose which is impossible because it smelt so bad you could actually see stink lines.” said one passenger.
The response of the general public after the flight largely seems to be unsympathetic towards Raymond; in an online article reporting the incident one reader commented “There is just some baggage you don't bring on a flight, a big poo is one of them!”
