Anybody who's taken a long flight knows what's up. At some point, usually after meals, the stench of flatus fills the air as one of your fellow passengers has passed wind. You just tough it out, resist the urge to vomit, and carry on.
I've been the guilty party myself on occasion. Best strategy is to start looking around at others to deflect blame.
But apparently things went too far in a flight to Amsterdam.
A pilot made an emergency landing after a fight broke out over a passenger who allegedly refused to stop passing gas.
The budget airline crew allegedly did not help the passengers after their complaints, Metro reports, leading to a fight between the men. Despite a warning from the pilot, the altercation continued and forced the airplane to be diverted to Vienna Airport, where it made an emergency landing.
Police boarded the plane once it landed and removed two women and two men that the pilot reported as “passengers on the rampage,” Metro reports.
“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. All I will say is that the crew were really provocative and stirred things up,” Lacchab said to De Telegraph.
