Indonesian Plane Grounded as Passengers Refuse to Fly Because of Durian Fruit

Sumatra plane passengers refuse to fly with stinking durian cargo
In April, 600 people were evacuated from the library of the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology - and crews were dispatched to check for gas leaks - after a rotting durian was left inside a cupboard.
The durian is known for being one of the grossest-smelling fruits in the world-think "turpentine and onions, garnished with a gym sock", as one food writer has described it, per Smithsonian.
That took nearly an hour and 2 tons were removed, but at the end of it, the plane took off from Bengkulu in Sumatra. Some countries have banned patrons from carrying and eating it on public transportation, airlines, and accommodation services.
The standoff ended when boarded passengers began to get off the flight.
Some passengers even argued that apart from the unpleasant smell, they were also concerned by the extra weight on board.

An Indonesian flight, Sriwijaya Air bound for Jakarta was reportedly delayed for about an hour yesterday (6 November), but it wasn't a technical error that caused it. "They're all just making a noise".
Boyke Ledy Watra, a reporter with Indonesia's Antara news agency who was aboard the fetid flight, said passengers began arguing with the crew - with some nearly coming to blows with flight attendants.
The flight eventually took off around 11:40am local time (04:40 GMT), an hour later than scheduled. Passengers on the ground later recorded crews unloading the shipment of durian from the cargo area.
Sriwijaya Air later insisted that it was not illegal to transport durian "as long as it is wrapped properly in accordance with flight regulations - carried inside the hold".
