Man's excessive flatulence in flight forces airplane to make unexpected landing

Two Dutchmen who were sat next to him reportedly asked him to stop, and when he didn't they contacted the cabin crew.

The captain of the budget airline flight was forced to land the plane early after passengers attacked the elderly man who refused to check his flatulence, De Telegraaf reported. However, when he refused to stop, a fight broke out.

A Transavia Airlines flight HV6902 from Dubai to Amsterdam was forced to land and four passengers were escorted from the plane by local police, after one passenger refused to stop farting, according to global reports.

Transavia Airlines made an unscheduled emergency landing in Vienna when two men complained that a passenger had started to fart.

Images of Vienna police boarding the plane to deal with so-called "passengers on the rampage" have since emerged, and four people were escorted off the plane and promptly banned. However, the passenger continued to fart despite several requests from passengers and the crew.

The women, who are sisters, that were removed from the flight are now taking the airline to court claiming they were not involved in the alternation.

Two women in the same row as the. erm, "gas dispenser" were also kicked off, with passenger Nora Lachhab telling De Telegraaf: "The odd thing is that we also had to leave the aircraft, while we did not know these guys at all".

Police also removed two sisters from the same row of seats, who were heard using abusive language and misbehaving as well. She said it was just bad luck that we landed up in the same row as them.

But a spokesperson for Transavia Airlines told the newspaper the women were misbehaving and hurling verbal abuse: "That is unacceptable. All I will say is that the crew were really provocative and stirred things up".

The airline confirmed the four were not charged as they hadn't broken any laws but backed the decision of the crew.

All four passengers were released from police custody without being charged.
