Flight forced to land as farting flier causes fight onboard

planeA Transavia Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing after a fight broke out due to a plane passenger’s unabated flatulence.

The obese passenger was reportedly reluctant to stop breaking wind and caused a massive punch-up while travelling from Dubai to Amsterdam Schiphol airport.

Naturally, the two Dutchmen sitting next to the gassy passenger requested the crew on flight HV6902 to do something.

There was little the cabin crew could do, so when the passenger persisted with loud and smelly flatulence, a fight broke out.

The ruckus forced the pilot of the low-cost Dutch airline to make an emergency landing at Vienna airport in Austria.

Police boarded the plane and removed the four passengers involved in the brawl.

A police spokesman confirmed that the row was started by a passenger suffering from wind who was making little effort to restrain himself and this offended the two young Dutchmen.

As well as the two Dutchmen, police also escorted two young women off the plane. The women were sisters, identified only as Nora L., 25, due to local privacy laws and her unnamed sister, are both from Rotterdam.

The young women claimed the treatment they received was unfair and they had little to do with the incident – both the farting and subsequent fight.

A spokesman for the airline told local media that the four people have now received a ban from any further travels, and in order to complete their journey they needed to find another airline to take them to Amsterdam.

However, they were not arrested as they had not broken any Austrian law.
