The struggle is very real.
lanes have been grounded over flatulence.
And, apparently, we do fart more on a flight. According to University of Copenhagen clinical professor Jacob Rosenberg, it’s simple physics.
The average person breaks wind 10 times a day when on the ground. In
the air, this is exacerbated by the drop in pressure in the air cabin.
Also, it doesn’t help matters that everyone’s cooped up in a small space.
So, spare a thought for one disgruntled passenger, for whom the
flatulence in rows 10 to 12 became so bad, she was forced to pass this
note, written on a napkin, to her flight attendant.
