Farting on aircraft: Smelly but better out than in, say gastroenterologists

The New Zealand Medical Journal has just published a study about farting in flight. The following are some bullet points that will no doubt get some DL tongues wagging:

So, DL: have you, would you, should you ever fart in flight?
