Flight passengers express confusion when they hear random sounds shooting over the public intercom. Passengers on board a Dallas-bound American Airlines flight earlier this month reported hearing bizarre noises from the plane’s PA system — which one traveler described as “somewhere between an orgasm and vomiting.”
Emerson Collins, a film producer and nonprofit director, posted a TikTok video of him reacting to the strange sounds that he witnessed on the flight from Los Angeles to Dallas.
“Someone on this flight seems to have broken into the intercom system and continues to make a sound that is somewhere between an orgasm and vomiting,” the puzzled passenger said.
A flight attendant can be heard addressing the passengers about the otherworldly sounds. “Ladies and gentlemen, we realize there is an extremely irritating sound coming over the public announcement,” she said. “The flight deck is trying to troubleshoot, trying to turn it off, so please be patient with us. We know it is an odd anomaly and none of us are enjoying it.”
Meanwhile, Collins continues to share the relentless sounds. “It was either someone’s unfortunate food poisoning in the bathroom or, like, someone with an uncomfortable approach to personal satisfaction,” Collins said.
The sounds — which began shortly before takeoff and continued in flight — did not come from the crew, flight attendants assured the passengers. “I swear it’s a prank,” a flight attendant is heard telling Collins, who decided to investigate the matter by walking down the aisle in search of possible pranksters.
