A fight broke out between passengers after one ‘wouldn’t stop farting loudly’.
Now, I don’t condone violence but that would get me rattled.
The Transavia Airlines HV6902 service was forced to make an unscheduled stop during its journey from Dubai to Amsterdam after a ‘punch-up broke out’ over the whole saga.
The plane landed in Vienna after two men objected when a ‘fellow traveller began breaking wind loudly’ and refused to stop doing it, Mail Online reports.
The pilot then made the decision to divert the plane to the Austrian airport.
Police boarded the plane once it had landed in Vienna, and four people were reportedly removed from the flight.
A police spokesman confirmed the ‘incident’ centred around one passenger suffering from wind who was ‘not attempting to restrain himself’, offending two Dutch men who were on the flight.
Police escorted two Dutchmen from the flight – though it has not been confirmed which two – and two young women, identified as Nora L, 25, because of local privacy laws, and her unnamed sister, both from Rotterdam.
The young women told local media their removal had been ‘unfair’.
Nora L said:
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.
A spokesman for Transavia Airlines told local media the four people had received a ban from any further travels on the airline.
Now, I don’t know what’s worse to contend with on a flight, a farting man, or a toddler’s tantrum.
But passengers aboard a flight from Germany to Newark, New Jersey had to deal with the demonic screams of a child for eight hours straight.
Three-year-old tearaway terrorised other passengers with his incessant screaming as he ran up and down the Airbus, much to the horror (and most likely annoyance) of the other passengers.
It all happened on board a Lufthansa flight and was recorded by New York City artist Shane Townley – he captured the boy’s antics on his phone throughout the long haul flight.
While the boy’s mother remains unidentified – according to the Daily Mail, she’s an American woman – but judging by her son’s wailing, she may as well have been an emissary for The Dark Lord of The Underworld – the implication said Lord of Darkness was her son.
She can be seen in the video asking if the stewards to could turn on the WiFi so he could go on his iPad as it might calm her son down, but being a three-year-old, kid calming down wasn’t on his agenda.
If passengers thought they’d get some respite, they were in for a rude awakening.
As the hours dragged on Townley filmed the boy running down the aisles, screaming his little head off, as distressed passengers tried to cover their ears in a futile attempt to drown out his noise.
One possible explanation behind the child’s actions could be down to behavioural issues. However, if this was the case, it appears his mother did not inform the cabin crew – a medical issue such as that would have to have been disclosed to the flight crew prior to the flight, as required by law.
At one point in the footage, the child can be seen sitting on top of the seats while his mother is begging him to ‘Calm down’ and take a seat.
While Townley did not file a complaint he told the Mail he was almost ‘certain someone did’ as the rebellious toddler’s antics affected the whole plane throughout the eight-hour journey.
