Flight Makes Emergency Landing Due to Passenger Who Won’t Stop Farting

Passenger 57?

More like Flatulence 57, folks!

Don’t worry. This genius joke will make a lot more sense in just a few moments…

Transavia Airlines

According to multiple news outlets (who apparently lacked a lot of hard news to report on over the weekend), a Transavia Airlines pilot was forced to make an emergency landing on a flight from Dubai to Amsterdam Schiphol several days ago.

The reason for said emergency landing?

Two female passengers on board the plane continually asked another passenger to please stop passing gas.

When this third passenger refused to do so, a loud argument broke out and gave the pilot no choice but to quell the smelly chaos by cutting the trip short.

Following a warning from crew members that did not to prevent the farting or the subsequent fighting, the plane was diverted to Vienna Airport.

Police boarded the plane after it landed and removed two women and two men that the pilot reported as “passengers on the rampage,” Metro reports.

This publication adds that the two women were sisters and that authorities brought a dog on board as well, presumably because canines have an especially great senses of smell.

And we guess such an ability would come in handy during this sort of situation.

“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,” said Nora Lacchab, one of the women.

She added:

“All I will say is that the crew were really provocative and stirred things up.”

She and her sibling are thinking about filing a lawsuit against the airline.

All four passengers were released from police custody without being charged.

However, all have been banned from flying Transavia Airlines ever again.

please stop

Said the company in a statement:

“Our crew must ensure a safe flight. When passengers pose risks, they immediately intervene. 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.”

Makes sense to us.

The thing is, we still don’t know the name of the person who actually dealt the farts.

In our experience, however, it was likely the same person who smelt them.

“Demonic Child” Goes On Rampage, Screams for 8-Hour Flight

The next time you want to complain about noise or commotion on board an airplane, please remember the video featured below.

And keep in mind: It could always be worse!

Earlier this week, passengers on a Lufthansa plane from Germany to New Jersey were forced to endure constant screaming from a three-year old child that sources tell The Daily Mail suffers from some kind of disability.

It's unclear exactly what is the matter with the toddler, but it's VERY clear in this footage that he is unable to sit still or be quiet.

Stuck on the eight-hour voyage with this unnamed child, New York City artist Shane Townley documented the stunning behavior at various point of the eight-hour trip.

Yes, the boy screamed, yelled and jumped all over various seats for eight consecutive hours.

The five-minute video – which was filmed a few seats back from the unwanted action – depicts this restless kid climbing all over the passengers’ seats and jabbering, while his mother tries to calm him down.

At one point, she asks the flight attendant to please (PLEASE!) get the wi-fi going so that she can distract her son with his iPad

Alas, this makes no difference in the end.

In his description of the footage on YouTube, Townley describes the energetic three-year old as "demonic" and the situation as a "nightmare," the latter of which we most definitely understand.

Heck, at one point, the child sits on top of the seats and hits the ceiling of the plane, ignoring his mom's request to "calm down."

Elsewhere in the video, we see passengers covering their ears and trying to ignore all that's taking place around them.

But it's a virtual impossibility.

On Twitter, most users were sympathetic to the mother here, although some offered a few suggestions for the airline:

A representative from Lufthansa told the British publication that most passengers were understanding of the incident and that their crew did its best to de-escalate the situation.

Only so much could be done, however.

Chrissy Teigen Livetweets 8-Hour Flight From LAX to … LAX

Chrissy Teigen livetweeted her eight hour flight that took her absolutely nowhere.

The whole adventure is a wild ride from start to finish, and should make you glad that social media exists.

See, she and John Legend were on their way to Tokyo, which is where they plan to welcome in the New Year. Good for them.

Chrissy is pregnant with baby #2, if you'll recall. New Year's is a pretty different experience when you can't drink, but Chrissy opted for sushi, which sounds like a great plan.

Unfortunately, her plane got turned around while over the Pacific … and the eight hour journey ended exactly where they'd started. Why? Allegedly over one passenger who seemed to be 

And the "adventure" wasn't over yet.

Chrissy, being an absolute treasure, livetweeted her experience, turning a massive inconvenience for 150 into a source of entertainment for millions.

 

1. Here’s how it started

Teigen lax tweet 01
Few things make a plane turn around 4 hours into a flight, and people STILL have questions about what happened.

2. As you can imagine, there was some confusion.

Teigen lax tweet 02
She meant to write “neither do they.”

3. Here’s what that flight path looked like

Teigen lax tweet 03
LAX to Tokyo became LAX to LAX. Yikes.

4. Chrissy Teigen shared the map with fans

Teigen lax tweet 04
It can be frightening when you don’t know what’s going on with your own flight.

5. Such a huge waste of time

Teigen lax tweet 05
Well, Gran Torino was a better film before we knew as much as we now do about Clint Eastwood’s personal life.

6. One passenger didn’t belong there

Teigen lax tweet 06
Chrissy Teigen will elaborate, but it seems puzzling that one passenger out of place would make the whole plane turn around instead of just, like, nabbing them at the Tokyo airport and sending them back on a plane to LAX.
