Pilot forced to make emergency landing after fight breaks out over farting passenger
A flight traveling from Dubai to Amsterdam was forced to make an emergency landing after a fight erupted mid-air over a passenger who would reportedly not stop passing gas
According to Dutch outlet De Telegraaf, the Transavia Airlines flight made an emergency landing at Vienna International Airport after two Dutch-Moroccan passengers began complaining to flight attendants about an older man's unrestrained flatulence.
According to Transavia Airlines, the heated discussion came to a boiling point when one of the young men threatened a stewardess.
A spokesperson for the airline said that on-flight crew members decided the two young passengers "could become a serious danger to flight safety" and that they needed to be removed from the aircraft.
Nora Lachhab and her sister, two Dutch-Moroccan women who happened to be sitting in the same row as the unruly men, were also escorted off the plane in Vienna, though they insisted they weren't involved in the incident.
Lachhab, 25, told De Telegraaf, "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."
