The two men pleaded with him to stop and complained to the flight crew as well.

Police escorted two Dutchmen from the flight - though it has not been confirmed which two - and two young women, identified as Nora L, 25, because of local privacy laws, and her unnamed sister, both from Rotterdam.

A pilot of a Transavia Airline flight from Dubai to Amsterdam last weekend was forced to make an emergency landing after a fight broke out because a passenger wouldn't stop repulsively farting. That's when the pilot chose to land in Vienna, reporting "passengers on the rampage".

"It was insane that we were included, 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", she said, according to Mirror. "All I will say is that the crew were really provocative and stirred things up", Lacchab said to De Telegraph.

Police also removed two sisters from the same row of seats, who were heard using abusive language and misbehaving as well.

But a spokesperson for Transavia Airlines told the newspaper the women were misbehaving and hurling verbal abuse: "That is unacceptable".

An Austrian police spokesman explained that "The case was as a result of a passenger suffering from flatulence, who did not attempt to restrain himself and that this deeply offended the Dutchmen". Meanwhile, the airline is also considering to charge the banned passengers the cost of the unexpected stopover.
