LL Cool J had a really horrible experience flying the other day. Hey, celebs are just like the rest of us!
Cool J was on a flight from LA to St. Louis, MO for the All-Star baseball game when a passenger on his flight alerted the crew of a smoke smell. The pilot decided to emergency land in Kansas City. The smell ended up being nothing, but then a passenger who was returning from abroad fell ill. Instead of throwing some aspirin and a blanket at the passenger, the crew started imagining all the terrible viruses and flesh eating bacteria that the passenger could have contracted outside the US and quarantined the whole plane for 3 hours.
Other passengers claim LL was a good sport though, posing for pictures and signing autographs (apparently without a face mask, the dare devil!)
Once the passengers were released LL continued to STL by car, probably a smart move.
