Indonesian airline passengers revolt over sacks of stinky durian

Zidane wrote that when he complained to a flight attendant about the stink and the heat on the plane she handed him a piece of paper and told him to put his complaint in writing.

A cargo of pungent durian fruit caused an Indonesian plane to be delayed for an hour after passengers turned their noses up at the funky freight and refused to fly. Hmm, do you think the smell would've been that bad? .

The durian fruit was then unloaded off the aircraft.

Durian is considered a delicacy in many parts of Asia but it attracts a lot of negative attention thanks to its "raw sewage"-like smell".

Sriwijaya Air eventually chose to unload the sacks of durian from the flight, causing them to depart at 11.40am, an hour later than scheduled.

A journalist with Indonesia's Antara news agency who was on the plane reported that several passengers began arguing with flight attendants and nearly came to blows.

Passenger Amir Zidane said, in a Facebook post, that he had flagged the issue with a member of the cabin crew.

Kotaku has updated its story, claiming that the video does exist, but the timeline of Blizzard's announcement isn't clear. He also said that it was Hearthstone and its mobile port that opened Blizzard's eyes to broader opportunity.

The report described an improper checklist procedure that failed to indicate the retracted flaps and slats of the plane and lead to the unsuccessful take-off that took the lives of passengers, crew as well as people on the ground.

The flight eventually took off around 11:40am local time (04:40 GMT), an hour later than scheduled.

"It's not illegal to carry durian in a flight as long as it is wrapped properly in accordance with flight regulations - carried inside the hold".

An Indonesian plane bound for Jakarta on Monday was grounded after passengers were overpowered by the noxious smell of durian pervading the cabin shortly before takeoff.

Eventually, they all disembarked the plane while the durian was unloaded.

Claims made in the videos that the plane was carrying three tonnes of durian were dismissed on Tuesday by Retri Maya, senior corporate communications manager at Sriwijaya Air.
