Transavia flight HV6902 runs from Dubai to Burgas, Bulgaria to Amsterdam.
- Two passengers sitting beside the man with gas “told him to stop and complained to Transavia Airlines crew.”
- The man was directly ordered by the pilot to stop farting. He didn’t, perhaps he couldn’t, and a fight ensued.
- On arrival in Vienna officers boarded the aircraft with dogs. Four passengers were moved from the aircraft.
- This included two sisters “sitting in the same row as the men” who complained about the flatulence. They say they did nothing wrong and just happened to be sitting beside the action.
Nora 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.
“They did not do anything to justify the bizarre behaviour of the Transavia crew.
“Do they sometimes think that all Moroccans cause problems? That’s why we do not let it sit.
“We had to find our own flights home with another airline.
“All I will say is that the crew were really provocative and stirred things up.”
- The four passengers have been banned from flying Transavia but have not been charged with any crime.
Here’s police boarding the aircraft:
A passenger did do something in the lavatory of a British Airways flight to Dubai once that forced the aircraft to turn around. And flatulence — albeit goat flatulence — has forced an emergency landing of a Singapore Airlines aircraft.
Passengers do pass gas more on planes because changes in air pressure cause the body to produce more gas. And airports sometimes offer food choices that are ill-advised for flying.
Not always pleasant for passengers but also not clear what you do about it.
