Plane Had To Make An Unexpected Stop Because One Of The Passengers Wouldn't Stop Farting
It’s weird that there are things that all of our bodies do and, in theory, should be totally used to by now that absolutely anyone with any sense still finds utterly repulsive.
Farting is gross. There’s no two ways about that and anyone who does it for a laugh deserves to be kicked in the arse impossibly hard. Really, that should be law. May’s Britain.
If you absolutely have to do it, the solution is clear – you make your way to the nearest outdoor space or go to a bathroom. Failing that, at the very least, go to an open window. It’s not hard.
Sadly a man on a flight from Dubai to Amsterdam couldn’t follow these simple rules of etiquette, and kept letting loose at his seat… in a closed capsule 39,000 feet in the sky. Not okay.
An unnamed man of the elderly persuasion on a Transavia Airlines plane was forcibly removed from the aircraft when the plane made an unscheduled stop in Vienna, Austria.
As reports have it, the two men sitting next to him on the plane kept asking him to stop farting, but he wouldn’t, so they were forced to take matters into their own hands.
It is unknown whether or not the man had some kind medical condition or if he simply didn’t care, but eventually the other passengers got so fed up with the offensive smell, that a fight broke out.
Cabin crew then got involved, as well as the pilot having to intervene, but eventually the flight had to be grounded in Vienna.
Police Officers were then brought onto the plane with a dog, who removed the offender from the flight. This was recorded and put onto Twitter, as it happens…

Along with the man, two sisters were removed from the flight as they were said to have been misbehaving and abusive.
Passenger Nora Lachhab wasn’t happy though, and told De Telegraaf that they had done nothing wrong:
“It was crazy that we were included, we had no idea who these boys were, we just had the bad luck to be in the same row and we didn’t do anything.
They did not do anything to justify the bizarre behaviour of the Transavia crew.
Do they sometimes think that all Moroccans cause problems? That’s why we do not let it sit.
We had to find our own flights home with another airline.
All I will say is that the crew were really provocative and stirred things up.“
A spokesperson from Transavia said in a statement:
“Our crew must ensure a safe flight.
When passengers pose risks, they immediately intervene – Our people are trained for that.
They know very well where the boundaries are.
Transavia is therefore square behind the cabin crew and the pilots.“
Seems all a bit much, really.
