If all costs were added up like hotels, extra fuel, crew, fines etc, what is the cost of something like this?

"Gas in the stomach or intestine expands as an aircraft climbs. In some people, it can lead to abdominal pains. Rushed meals, or increased swallowing because of anxiety, can mean problems.

The solution: Before flying, avoid food and drink that can cause a buildup of gas - such as cabbage, Brussels sprouts, apples or beans. Try eating peppermint capsules to help absorb gases. To release trapped gas, lean forward over your left knee and then sit up again - this lets it rise through your system."

Spoke to a friend who was onboard he says its that dreaded odder that smells like smelly ssox.
I think this is not the first time this smell has occurred on airbus aircraft

Sock funk tends to consist of a mixture of straight-chain organic amines such as putrescine and cadaverine (both aptly named) and thiol (R-SH)-containing organics. Sulfur dioxide tends to smell of rotten eggs. Skunk scent, coffee, and cannabis tend to be rich in thiols. Rotting protein (especially fish) tends to be rich in organic amines.

What fluids might be used on an A380 that would contain significant amounts of nitrogen or sulfur? Skydrol is a phosphate ester, so shouldn't have this charasteric smell.

I'm wondering if some animal (mouse?) got into an air duct and died there.
