A pilot was forced to make an emergency landing after a fight broke-out when a passenger wouldn’t stop farting. The flight from Dubai to Amsterdam made an unscheduled stop in Vienna as the elderly overweight man reportedly refused to contain himself in the packed out cabin.
According to MirrorOnline, fight occurred on the flight when two Dutchman who were sitting next to the flatulent man told him to stop and complained to Transavia Airlines crew.
Yet despite repeated requests and even a direct order from the pilot the man carried on and a fight broke out.
The pilot of the Dutch low-cost airline then decided to make an emergency landing at Vienna International Airport in Austria.
Officers boarded the plane with police dogs and four suspects were escorted off the plane.
The pilot had reported “passengers on the rampage” before footage emerged of passengers being removed in a post on social media by Alfred Dekker.
A police spokesman confirmed that the incident centred around a passenger suffering from wind who was not attempting to restrain himself and that this offended two young Dutchmen -who started a fight with the man.
Two sisters sitting in the same row as the men were also escorted off the plane – but they told local media they hadn’t done anything wrong.
