An American Airlines flight was supposed to fly from Los Angeles to Washington, DC last weekend. The flight ended up with a long delay for a bizarre and smelly reason.

FOX News writes that the flight was delayed “due to a reported smell of urine coming from the cabin.”

The flight was delayed for over four hours due to this problem. A columnist for the Washington Post tweeted that “American Airlines won’t rebook because our bags are on the plane- which is now in a hangar.”

Later the columnist, Dana Millbank reported that a “urine-free plane now promised after 2.5 hour delay. Sarah Lee pound cake offered as consolation.” Sounds like a fair form of compensation, right?

AA spokeswoman Leslie Scott told Fox News that the flight was delayed due to cabin cleanliness and the flight left around 4.5 hours late on a new aircraft.

I wonder if most of the passengers onboard got pissy about the situation? I’m pretty sure that I would’ve!
