The Fart That Caused A Fist-Fight
It’s not uncommon for fights to break out on flights, where people are sitting in such a tight uncomfortable space for so many hours and are hungry, tired and fed up with turbulence. But a fight that broke out because of farting? That’s a first.
A Transavia Airline flight was forced to make an unexpected stop while flying from Dubai to Amsterdam after a dangerous fist fight broke out. The plane landed in Vienna after two men lost it from a fellow traveller loudly passing gas.
Police boarded the plane in Vienna, forcing four people to leave the plane. The police escorted the two Dutch women, Nora and her sister from Rotterdam off of the plane. The women have expressed to the media that they believe this treatment to be unfair. These Dutch women were not involved in the fist fight, they just happened to be sitting in the same row as the men.
A spokesperson for the airline told the media that the four people would be banned from traveling on the airline.
