A moaning intercom on an American Airlines flight has given the mile-high club new meaning after a passenger compared the bizarre sound to “somewhere between an orgasm and vomiting.”

The strange cacophony rang through the intercom of a flight from Los Angeles to Dallas earlier this month and was documented by actor Emerson Collins who posted a hilarious video of the incident on Twitter.

Collins said the mystery noises started before takeoff and continued throughout the flight despite the best efforts of the flight crew.

“Someone on this flight appears to have broken into the intercom system and continues to make a noise somewhere between orgasm and vomiting,” Collins said.

The sounds, shrouded in mystery, had stunned the flight crew when an attendant spoke over the intercom in the video, reassuring passengers that they were investigating the problem.

“Ladies and gentlemen, we realize that there is an extremely annoying noise coming from the public announcements,” she said.

Another Twitter user said, “It happened on my August 5 flight from JFK to LAX and I was on an older A321.

“It was Flight 117. A few days earlier, the flight crew was on the same plane and the same thing happened. It was funny and disturbing.

American Airlines spokeswoman Sarah Jantz told the Washington Post that the incident was a “mechanical problem,” adding that the airline’s intercom system is wired with no external access or Wi-Fi components.

“After the initial report, our maintenance team thoroughly inspected the aircraft and PA system and determined that the noises were caused by a mechanical problem with the PA amplifier, which increases the volume of the PA system when the engines are running,” said they.

“The first report the airline received was the September 18 Santa Ana-Dallas flight. Our team is reviewing the additional reports.”
