    Inconsiderate passengers can make even the smoothest of flights a stressful experience.

    Just ask one disgruntled traveller who took issue with one particular neighbour - in the areas of rows 10 to 12 - who kept passing gas during the journey.

    In fact, things got so bad at one point that the unhappy passenger even went so far as to pass a desperate note, written on a napkin, to a flight attendant.

    The plea for help was then posted to Reddit by user Garwee20, who wrote: 'My flight attendant mom got this napkin from an upset passenger.'

    'I don't know if you can make an announcement,' the note reads. '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 ass cancer'.

    As it turns out, though, the situation may not have been the flatulent passenger's fault.

    University of Copenhagen clinical professor Jacob Rosenburg tells Metro that the average amount of times a person breaks wind each day is exacerbated in the air due to a drop in air cabin pressure.

    Still, being restricted to a confined space sure doesn't help matters.

    Of course, many Reddit users were curious as to whether the flight attendant actually made the announcement. (She didn't.)

    This isn't the first time flatulence has caused trouble in the air.

    Just last November, 2,186 goats caused a 747-400 freighter plane to make an emergency landing in Bali Denpasar after their gas allegedly set off smoke alarms.

    I hate to fly, but when I do, I'm sure I'm an incredibly inconsiderate passenger. I recline my seat as far back as possible, and dammit, I'll fart as much as I want.

    Thank you.
    All of you.
    This is why I don't fly.

    Used to be my objection to the post-9/11 frisks & having the shit in my luggage pilfered.
    Finally - it was the farts that did me in.
    Some people - they're just so funky!

    Thank you.

    If I were behind you, you wouldn't ever do that again, I can promise.

    Fuck you, the air marshall would kick you off the plane if you tried anything funny. Plus I'm very litigious. The reason I put my seat all the way back though isn't really because I'm trying to be a prick, but because I'm 6'5" and it's nearly impossible for me to be comfortable on a 6-hour flight another way.
