It's been reported that a flight in Europe made an emergency landing this week because passengers on board said they couldn't handle the awful smell coming from a guy on the plane.
The plane, flown with Dutch budget airline Transavia, was heading from Las Palmas on the Spanish Canary Islands to Amsterdam in the Netherlands on May 29. But about halfway through its journey, as shown by records on the FlightRadar24 tracking website.
According to one of the passengers on board, the diversion was down to the unbearable smell of a man onboard.
Piet Van Haut, one of the men on board, told the Belgian broadcaster VRT that, "it was a huge stench, the man was sitting on the last row of the plane, and it smelled like he hadn't washed for weeks."
Van Haut said several passengers got sick, and airline staff eventually asked the man to go in the toilet in an effort to minimize the damage.
INSIDER contacted Transavia for comment. They confirmed the unexpected landing, but could not immediately comment on why it happened.
Weirdly, this isn't the first stench-related story to strike the relatively obscure airline.
