A mild drama happened at the Los Angeles Airport on Sunday when a smelly passenger socks formed a whole plane to make an emergency landing after the stench emanating from the individual became unbearable for the other plane passengers.

This happened on an Alaska Airlines aircraft heading from San Francisco to New Orleans on Sunday.

When the strong odour became offensive, the airline was forced to make an emergency landing at the Los Angeles International Airport.

All the passengers were directed onto new flights but the identity of the individual with the smelly socks was shielded.

  1. Ouch! Couldn’t they have caused the offensive socks to be pulled off and safely stored in an air-tight covered container and the passenger given another pair of socks from the airline stock without having to make the emergency landing?
    Maybe it is time for airlines to start screening passengers for damp dirty smelly socks. Na wa o!

  4. In 2008 I caught a connecting flight from the Netherlands to Nigeria. The plane was filled with Nigerians travelling back home. Half way through the journey the whole place began to stink. A young man sitting on my left shook off his shoes and I nearly fainted as the stench from his socks, and possibly his feet, hit my nostrils and exploded in my brain. I held my breath but for a short while. I got up and walked to the back but to no avail. It was everywhere. The facial expressions of the airhostesses said it all: upper lips curled up and noses wrinkled in a manner that hindered smiling. To counter the bad odour, the crew cranked up the aircon. That helped somehow but could not eliminate the stench completely; you had to bear it because there was nowhere else to go for relief.

    When the plane touched down at Murtala Muhammed International Airport, you could see the relief on the faces of the flight attendants as they were able to turn on the smiles once again as they were from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport before we boarded the plane to Lagos.

    Before 2008, I read a piece on the Nigerian World website about KLM spraying something inside the aircraft while in flight. I presume the plane was filled with Nigerians. The writer was besides himself with worry. He made it sound as if the airplane crew sprayed some chemicals inimical to human health. He kept asking “Who did this to Nigerians?” “Nobody did nothing to Nigerians,” as my friend would say. Nigerians did it to themselves: they stank. The men, that is.

    Whatever was prayed was to eliminate bad odour. Make una baf before una travel.
