Get the gas masks out.
A passenger who was emitting large amounts of gas forced a plane to make an emergency landing.
A Transavia Airlines flight from Dubai to Amsterdam was grounded after a fight broke out. Two passengers became irate after a man continued passing gas after they asked him to stop, and it resulted in a fight.
The crew refused to assist the complaining passengers, so they took things into their own hands.
The pilot reported that passengers were “on a rampage,” and 4 people were removed once the plane landed in Vienna.
Two women removed from the flight are suing the airline, claiming there was no wrongdoing on their part that would have justified their removal from the plane.
One of the two women, Nora Lacchab, claimed the removal was “humiliating.”
“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.
All the removed passengers were banned from the airline. “They know very well where the boundaries are. Transavia is therefore square behind the cabin crew and the pilots,” the airlines said.
