I am currently aboard United Airlines 1236 from Houston to Los Angeles. Everything was normal and we pushed back on time. As the flight attendants were doing their final check, they noticed an odor similar to propane in the cabin.
The pushback was halted and we pulled back into the gate. Many people from United Airlines’ Ground Operations came to investigate. Ultimately, the fire department was called. A few minutes later, a woman came by carrying a box of what she thought was the source of the ‘propane’ smell. After conversing with the crew, they agreed.
A box of creme wafers was the culprit. Really?! We were delayed an hour because of wafers! I hope that I do not miss my connection in Los Angeles. SMH.
