The captain has illuminated the no farting sign

Occasionally, I stumble across a news article that's just too good to be true. Okay, well in truth I stumble across such a news article nearly every day. Today's story is about the woman who tried to cover up the smell of her flatulence by lighting matches, a common method of course; the only problem was that she was on a commercial airliner. In flight.

Seems the American Airlines flight was headed from Dallas to Washington, DC, but made an emergency landing in Nashville...
Other passengers reported the odor of burned matches, but the woman was not forthcoming when asked about it, Lowrance said on Wednesday.

"Of course, she was scared and embarrassed but all the passengers had to disembark, all the luggage had to be searched, a canine team was brought in, and about three hours were consumed in sorting out the situation," said Lynne Lowrance, a spokeswoman for Nashville's airport.

The woman was not allowed back on the flight and barred from flying on American Airlines, Lowrance said.
And I didn't see this earlier in the week. Oh, I'm slipping for certain.

So here's my question. She was embarrassed by the smell she let off, but she wasn't more embarrassed by the fact the plane had to land and be searched?
