Keeping with the aeronautical theme, Belgian broadcaster VRT reports a passenger on a Transavia flight smelt so bad that other passengers started fainting and vomiting after the flight took off from Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport,.
The Boeing 737 is said to have landed in the city of Faro, in the Algarve region of southern Portugal, so the foul-smelling man could be removed from the flight.
A picture taken by one of the passengers claims to show medical personnel taking him from the plane to a bus.
Belgian passenger Piet van Haut described the stench of the man in question as “unbearable”.
He said: “It was like he hadn’t washed himself for several weeks.
“Several passengers got sick and had to puke.”
Transavia confirmed the emergency landing saying it was due to “medical reasons”.
It is not known why the man smelt so bad and what other medical issues he was suffering from.
In February, a Transavia plane from Dubai to Amsterdam was forced to make an emergency landing in the Austrian capital of Vienna after a passenger, who could not stop farting, caused a brawl between passengers.
