Travelers on a flight from the Netherlands over the weekend were probably happy that their flight made the emergency landing that it did. The Transavia flight was forced to make an emergency landing after a passenger's body odor was too much for others on the flight to handle.
The flight on its way to Gran Canaria, an island off the coast of Spain, detoured after passengers on the plane began vomiting and fainting because of another traveler's 'unbearable' body odor. Flight Attendants tried to quarantine the man in one of the plane's bathrooms, but the pilots were eventually forced to ground the flight so the man could be removed.
A picture taken by one of the passengers shows medical personnel escorting the man from the aeroplane into a bus.
Belgian passenger Piet van Haut described the man's stench as unbearable and said
"It was like he hadn't washed himself for several weeks. Several passengers got sick and had to puke."
A spokesperson from the company confirmed that the flight was diverted for medical reasons, but that the man smelled "quite a bit."
Earlier this year, another Transavia plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Vienna after several passengers broke out into a fist fight because once of them wouldn't stop farting.
