Emergency landing: Plane forced to ground after man kept farting

Chaos erupted on the flight when two Dutchman who were sitting next to the flatulent man told him to stop and complained to Transavia Airlines crew

The Dubai to Amsterdam flight made an unscheduled stop in Vienna as the elderly overweight man reportedly refused to contain himself in the packed out cabin.

The chaos started when two men sitting close to the flatulent man complained to him about the awful situation and later on reported to the Transavia Airlines crew.

Yet despite repeated requests and even a direct order from the pilot the man carried on and a fight broke out.

Huffpost reports that the pilot of the Dutch low-cost airline then decided to make an emergency landing at Vienna International Airport in Austria.

Officers boarded the plane with police dogs and four suspects were escorted off the plane.

The pilot had reported "passengers on the rampage" before footage emerged of passengers being removed in a post on social media by Alfred Dekker.

A police spokesman confirmed that the incident centred around a passenger suffering from wind who was not attempting to restrain himself and this offended two young Dutchmen who fought him.
