Man's Flatulence Forces Plane to Make Emergency Landing

Man's Flatulence Forces Plane to Make Emergency Landing:  A Transavia flight from Dubai to Amsterdam was forced to make an emergency landing in Vienna after two Dutch passengers picked a fight with another passenger - who wouldn’t stop breaking wind during the flight. 

Wow - sounds like terrorism has really hit a new low with this.  But come on, why didn’t those Dutch guys just open a few windows rather than make a big stink about it?  Kind of makes you long for the good old days when they just had “snakes on a plane.”  Folks, here’s a free travel tip - never eat beans, hot dogs, burritos, hard-boiled eggs or broccoli before boarding a plane! 

Of course, Transavia immediately issued a statement saying that they stand “firmly behind” the cabin crew and pilot’s decision to remove the Dutch passengers who started the fight.  OK, that’s easy enough, but the real test is - will any of them dare to stand “firmly behind” that farting passenger?  Talk about “the wind beneath my wings.”

I can see it all now, “this is your captain speaking, due to unfavorable tailwinds, we'll be making an emergency landing in Vienna and, because we have flatulent passengers onboard - we’re recommending that seat cushions on this flight should probably NOT be considered as a flotation device.”

One of the few times when they might have wanted a smoking flight

Should have taped his mouth and ass with duct tape and left him until landing.

This post is a gas (when in doubt, go for a fart joke).

But seriously, folks, experienced travelers know it's a good idea to avoid heavy meals on a trip. That goes double when flying.
