Woman Filmed Drying Underwear Under Air Vent On Packed Flight
Desperate times call for desperate measures, which is presumably why one woman was spotted shamelessly drying a pair of soggy underpants beneath an air vent on a packed, commercial flight to Moscow.
The unidentified lady waved the pants around above her head in an attempt to dry them out, mid-flight.
Fellow travellers, who were a mixture of amused and disgusted by the incident, have claimed that she spent around 20 minutes airing out the knickers in total.
She was on board a Ural Airlines flight from Antalya, in southern Turkey to the Russian capital of Moscow, when her panty-drying escapades were caught on tape.
Eyewitnesses on the plane said the woman did not seem remotely embarrassed as she moved the knickers around under the vent, making sure that every inch was being dried.
Some people have speculated that maybe the woman was a mother, desperately trying to dry out a pair of children's underpants after the child had an accident on board. But not everyone was convinced.
One eyewitness said: "Everybody was looking with interest and confusion, but everybody remained silent."
Meanwhile, a packed Transavia flight from Dubai to Amsterdam was forced to make an unexpected landing in Austria earlier this week, when an elderly passenger's flatulence became the subject of in-flight violence.
Reports suggest that two Dutch men sitting next to the culprit had asked him politely to stop farting, to which he declined.
Despite a warning from the pilot, an altercation broke out between the men and the flight was forced to divert to Vienna, where it made an emergency landing.
Police boarded the plane once it landed and removed two men and two women. However, the women claimed that they had no part in the fight and are now taking the airline to court.
"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. All I will say is that the crew were really provocative and stirred things up," one woman said to De Telegraph.
All four passengers were soon released from police custody without being charged.
"Our crew must ensure a safe flight. When passengers pose risks, they immediately intervene. Our people are trained for that. They know very well where the boundaries are. Transavia is therefore square behind the cabin crew and the pilots," the airliner said in a statement.
