Basically a passenger had too much flatulence and some people around him started fighting since allegedly he wouldnt stop and the flight diverted to Vienna....

Fight over man's flatulence forces flight to make emergency landing | Fox News (http://www.foxnews.com/travel/2018/02/18/fight-over-mans-flatulence-forces-flight-to-make-emergency-landing.html)
"A pilot made an emergency landing after a fight broke out over a passenger who allegedly refused to stop passing gas.

Two Dutchmen sitting next to the flatulent passenger reportedly asked the man to stop, but he refused and continued to break wind aboard the Transavia Airlines flight from Dubai to Amsterdam Schiphol."

Sounds like a lot of hot air to me.

First plane to divert for having too much gas onboard?

How does one comply with a request not to pass flatulence. I mean, one can only hold so much pressure before she blows...

Maybe this topic should be moved to the toxic cabin air post?

A quick trip to the head might have alleviated matters.

News sources have named the Dutch passenger as Mustafa Boti-Trumpet, an air biscuit manufacturer from Assen.

Report says two Dutch passengers. Transavia is a lot cost carrier, so presumably no blankets distributed. And is a Dutch airline. Could it have been a game of Dutch ovens gone wrong???

Had a laugh about this diversion to offload passengers after a fight about a flatulent passenger but when I looked again it has been removed. I looked at the emergency evac at Lagos, thinking that may have been the issue??

Is PPRuNe being a bit precious about being totally PC these days? or maybe the offending passenger was one of the Mods? :sad: (Just kidding)

Gives a new meaning to "toxic cabin air"!
All of a sudden I am less worried about that bleed air from the engines...

Well, if they take him off the plane then how will he get there? Er fährt mit dem Auto?

What's the back story here?
Did he actually refuse to stop? (I guess, if they diverted)
Did he think it was his inalienable right to pass wind when and wherever he felt like he needed to?
Did he not have any parents or school teachers or employers?

Oh what a sleekit, horrible beastie
Lurks in yer stomach efter a feastie
As ye sit doon amang yer kin,
There starts to stir a michty wind.

The neeps and tatties and mushie peas,
Stert workin like a gentle breeze
But soon the puddin' wi' the sonsie face
Will hiv ye blawin' a' ower the place.

Nae matter whit the hell ye dae
A?'body's gonnae huv tae pay
Even if ye try tae stifle,
It's like a bullet oot a rifle.

Haud yer bum tight tae the chair
Tae try tae stop the leakin' air.
Shift yersel' fae cheek tae cheek
An' pray to God it disnae reek.

But a' yer efforts go assunder,
Oot it comes like a clap o' thunder.
It ricochets aroon' the room,
Michty me! A sonic boom!

God almighty, It fairly reeks
(I hope a hivnae' shit ma breeks)
Straight tae the bog ah better scurry
Aw whit the hell, It's no ma worry.

A'body roon'aboot me's chokin'
Wan or twa are nearly bokin'.
Ah'll feel much better fur a while,
Ah cannae help but raise a smile.

'Twis him!! Ah shout, wi' accusin' glower.
Alas, tae late. He's jist keeled ower.
'Ye mingin' clert!' They shout and stare.
Ah amnae welcome ony mair.

Where e'er ye be, Let yer wind gang free
(Sounds jist the job fir thee an me)
Whit a fuss at Rabbies pairty
Ower the sake o' wan wee ferty.

A problem that I understand, due, I think, to reducing the cabin pressure.
Which make me go on to think that the pilot could have put the pressure up and pushed it all back in again.
Went to the doctors once with my farting problem and told him that I was lucky that they were silent and did not smell. He have me drops to clear my nose and arranged an appointment for a hearing aid.

I once had an excruciating and voluminous attack of wind while I was in my local pub. Luckily they had a sound system, playing loud music: I started squeezing them out in time to the music, which fortunately was the 1812 overture. With cannons. At which point I really let rip.
I then noticed 2 things: everyone was looking at me strangely, and the pub did not after all have a sound system. The overture was on my iPod. So could the aforementioned passenger have been similarly deluded by the in-flight entertainment system?

This is not the first time violence has ensued as I was the victim of a gratuitous assault for similar reasons in the air.

"Some time ago " happily attempting to fly a Ka7 over Germany, I discovered a combination of Dortmunder Union, currywurst, frites and mayo, adversely affected my digestive system the next day.

Thus after demonstrating my superb handling skills ...cough ! we entered the downwind leg and I felt an urgent need to equalise the pressure. Ever helpful, I opened the DV widow at the same time.....with hindsight, this may have contributed to the distribution thereafter.

It's a " bit disconcerting " when your instructor violently slaps the back of your head, several times, and said some very rude words, when you are trying to concentrate on speed / altitude circuit planning etc.

Thus I changed to Carlsberg which was far more conducive to my digestive system.

@longeron "Porky " W. was the gentleman in question....one of life's true diplomats

This topic has 3 separate threads running. All not even close to the true facts. It is going to be a lawyers' picnic. Some off-loaded pax insist in their innocence and are engaging lawyers. There is a question about captain acting beyond authority, and must have been based only on information from the purser. I do not know if HV has comms to ops, or if this decision was made on the spot.
A friend, on a full flight, was seated between 2 gentlemen of darker colour whose BO created nausea. That can not be turned off. Is that a flight safety issue? If the pax becomes ill, that is a get out for a landing, but landing for an objectionable atmosphere is hardly flight safety. The fight is something else, but who started it? The irony is the gentleman in question was not off-loaded.
The lawyers are licking their lips.
