Handwritten plea to flight attendant about 'farting' passenger goes viral

A disgruntled flier was so offended by a fellow passenger’s mid-flight flatulence that he wrote note to a flight attendant in hopes that she would make an announcement for the person to "see a doctor."

The note, written on a napkin, was later shared on Reddit by user Garwee20: "My flight attendant mom got this napkin from an upset passenger."

The note reads:

"I don't know if you can make an announcement. But if you can, you should say that whoever is farting in the areas of rows 10 to 12 should definitely see a doctor because they might have (EXPLETIVE) cancer."

The note has gone viral with more than two million views on Reddit.

The flight attendant didn't pass on the message and embarass the flier.

Health experts say travelers are more likely to pass gas while flying than on the ground. The reason for the flying flatulence? That's because gases in the digestive tract expand as cabin pressure decreases at high altitude.
