Everyone onboard an American Airlines flight smelled it — that much we know — but the problem is they had no clue who or what dealt it, so the pilot was forced to make an emergency landing.

The Wednesday night flight from Miami, Barbados to Barbados was inundated with a pungent chemical odor. Crew believed it was coming out of a passenger’s bag. You can imagine the panic that ensued.
