A pilot made an emergency landing after one passenger’s farting caused a fight between passengers, Metro reported.
On a Transavia Airlines flight from Dubai to Amsterdam Schiphol, a fight broke out after a man refused to stop passing gas in the cabin. Two nearby Dutchmen grew agitated, then aggressive in trying to make the man stop.
Transavia crew members did not assist or try to disarm the situation, according to Metro.
The plane landed and police escorted two men and two women off the flight as “passengers on the rampage.” The two women, who are sisters, are suing the airline, claiming they were unjustly removed and humiliated.
“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,” 25-year-old law student Nora Lacchab said, Fox News reported.
Authorities eventually released four passengers without charges, but banned from flying on Transavia again.
“Our crew must ensure a safe flight. When passengers pose risks, they immediately intervene,” Transavia said in a statement, according to Fox News. “Our people are trained for that. They know very well where the boundaries are. Transavia is therefore square behind the cabin crew and the pilots.”
