Hilarious ‘orgasm’ moaning on flight intercom system explained by airline

American Airlines has been forced to clarify what exactly a strange “orgasming” noise coming from its PA system was during a flight.

The weird occurrence happened during an American Airlines flight from Los Angeles to Dallas last week.

Video of the incident, posted on social media by actor Emerson Collins, went viral and shows how passengers were trying very hard not to laugh at strange noises comparable only to someone either orgasming, throwing up or suffering from severe constipation.

The pilot, who seemed annoyed, was heard telling passengers they were trying to figure out what it was, while cabin crew were speculating that it was a “prank”.

During the flight, the captain said: “Please be patient with us, we know it’s a very odd anomaly, and none of us are enjoying it, so we do appreciate your attention just for a few more moments until we figure out how to turn it off.”

Collins, whose video has now been seen more than 1.2 million times on Twitter, claimed it was possible someone had “broken into” the on-board intercom system to make the hilarious noises.

Some on social media added their own guesses to what it might have been.

One user wrote: “This happened to me last week.

“It wasn’t the whole flight, but periodically weird phrases and sounds.

“Then a huge 'oh yeah' when we landed.

“We thought the pilot left his mic open.”

And another said: “I'm an aircraft engineer and depending on the model of plane, after they reach a certain age, they go through a lot of pain to get in the air.

“The groaning is standard – now we just have indicator lights."

But American Airlines has clarified exactly what the oddity was.

A spokesman said: “The PA systems onboard our aircraft are hardwired and there is no external access.

“Following the initial report, our maintenance team thoroughly inspected the aircraft and the PA system and determined the sounds were caused by a mechanical issue with the PA amplifier, which raises the volume of the PA system when the engines are running.”
