Most airlines will provide a bassinet. You will need to buy a ticket for your baby (typically 10% of normal ticket price). Remember to check in early, so that you are allocated a seat with the bassinet; if you don't manage, speak with the steward/ess immediately you enter the plane, so that they can arrange for the bassinet/+seat for you.

Thanks. I actually requested for a bassinet at the counter and I was given. Although I felt pity for the Oyinbo man sitting beside me. My baby disturbed the hell out of him. LOL

Farting Passenger Forces plane To Make Emergency Landing

When you think you have heard it all, something new pops up.

So this flight from Dubai to Amsterdam had to make an emergency landing in Vienna after a fight broke out because one of the passengers wouldn’t stop breaking wind.

The fart-induced fracas happened Feb. 11 aboard Transavia Airlines Flight HV6902 when two men sitting next to an apparently very flatulent man raised a stink about his repeated gas attacks, according to Fox News.

When the alleged perpetrator didn’t stop, his disgusted seatmates reportedly complained to the airline crew, who apparently did nothing.

Instead, the captain issued a warning to the two complainants, accusing them of noisy and aggressive behavior and making threats, according to the NL Times.

When the freedom-from-flatulence fighters wouldn’t stop griping about their fellow passenger, a fight broke out on the plane, according to the Dutch language newspaper De Telegraaf.

The pilots then made an emergency stop in Vienna and removed the complainants, but apparently not the farting man. Two women sitting in the same row as the angry men were also forced off the plane as well.

All four people reportedly shared Dutch and Moroccan ancestry, but the two women claim they were simply sitting in the same row as the men involved with the incident.

None of the passengers kicked off the plane were arrested because they had not broken any Austrian laws. However, they have been banned from flying Transavia Airlines in the future.

The key difference is that it is designed to fly in the air and not be pushed around on the ground.

Most likely:

1) Not fully loaded with fuel and passenger. It is a regional airline.

2) Tires fully inflated for less rolling friction.

To me, it seems that this wasn't an emergency but something those chaps were used to doing. Everyone knew their positions.

I've pushed back trainer Cessna 2 seater aircrafts many times and even those took decisive effort so I give it to these guys.

Travel / Iran Plane Crash: All 66 People On Board Feared Dead by XaintJoel20(m): 5:25am On Feb 19
Sixty-six people are feared to have been killed in a passenger plane crash in the Zagros mountains in Iran.
The Aseman Airlines plane, en route from Tehran to the south-western city of Yasuj, came down near the city of Semirom in Isfahan province.
The Red Crescent deployed search and rescue teams to the site. The airline has retracted a statement saying definitively that all aboard were dead.
Flight EP3704 left Tehran at 04:30 GMT, and crashed about an hour later.
The aircraft, a twin-engine turboprop, came down on Dena Mountain, 22km (14 miles) from Yasuj, news channel Irinn reported.
Sixty passengers, two security guards, two flight attendants and the pilot and co-pilot were on board.
The airline initially said everyone had been killed, but said later: "Given the special circumstances of the region, we still have no access to the spot of the crash and therefore we cannot accurately and definitely confirm the death of all passengers of this plane."
Bad weather, including fog and heavy snow, has hampered rescue efforts. Emergency teams have had to travel to the crash site by land rather than using a helicopter.
Passengers' relatives have gathered at a mosque near Tehran's Mehrabad airport, according to Reuters news agency.
"I can't bring myself to believe it," said one woman whose husband was on board.
One man told Tabnak news website that he had missed the flight.
Showing an unused ticket as proof, he said: "God has been really kind to me but I am so sad from the bottom of my heart for all those dear ones who lost their lives."
Iran's President Hassan Rouhani expressed sympathy for all involved, saying, in a statement, that the incident brought "great grief and sorrow".
Iran has suffered several aviation accidents in recent years and has an ageing aircraft fleet.
The country has struggled to obtain spare parts to maintain its planes in the face of international sanctions imposed to curb its nuclear programme.
Those sanctions have been mostly lifted under a 2015 deal between Iran and the US alongside several other powers.
Aseman, Iran's third largest airline, signed a contract with Boeing last year to buy 30 of its latest medium-range 737s.
The crashed plane, a French-Italian-made ATR 72-500, was 25 years old, Iran's civil aviation organisation said.
Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has also expressed "deep sympathy" for relatives of those on board, saying the accident "saddened the hearts".

Airplane Carrying 66 Passengers Crashes In Central Iran - All Passengers Dead

Iranian passenger plane operated by Aseman, carrying 66 people has crashed in central Iran during a flight from Tehran to Yasuj, according to Iranian news media report. The crash occurred few hours ago.

A spokesperson for Iran Aseman Airlines told state TV that Sunday's air crash killed all 66 people on board though rescuers are yet to get to the crash site.

According to Aljazera News, the plane went down in a mountainous area near the town of Semirom, the news agency ISNA quoted Mojtaba Khaledi, emergency services spokesperson, as saying. The Iranian Red Crescent said it had deployed to the area, which was quite foggy at the time of the crash.

State-run PressTV said the Iran Aseman Airlines flight was carrying 60 passengers and six crew members. Iran Aseman Airlines is a semi-private air carrier headquartered in Tehran that specialises in flights to remote airfields across the country and also flies internationally.

The ATR-72, a twin-engine turboprop, is used for short-distance regional flying. Authorities said they would be investigating the cause of the air crash though some Iranian risk analyst are proposing mechanical problem as the plane is said to have lost contact with the tower 20mins after takeoff.

Travel / Passenger Drops Farts So Putrid Pilot Is Forced To Make Emergency Landing by edward1984(m): 10:20am On Feb 18
A pilot was forced to make an emergency landing after a row caused by a passenger who refused to stop farting.

The passenger apparently kept breaking wind on board a Transavia Airlines flight from Dubai to Amsterdam Schiphol last weekend.

The two Dutchmen sitting next to him didn’t take very well to his flatulence, but the unashamed man was apparently not put off and refused to hold back.

Members of the crew on the Dutch low-cost airline were apparently less than sympathetic and refused to do anything about it.

Despite a warning from the pilot, a fight between the men then broke out, causing the flight to be diverted to Vienna Airport .

Police boarded the plane with dogs and removed two sisters and the two men after the pilot made a report about ‘passengers on the rampage’.

The women are now taking the Dutch budget airline to court after being removed from the flight, and claim they have done nothing wrong.

Nora Lacchab, 25, a law student from Rotterdam, and her unnamed sister, say being removed was ‘humiliating’ are now seeking to legal action.

The two women, who are of Dutch and Moroccan descent, were returning to Amsterdam after a week holidaying in Dubai.

Nora told De Telegraaf: ‘We had nothing to do with the whole disturbance. We distance ourselves from that.

‘Do they sometimes think that all Moroccans cause problems? That’s why we do not let it sit.

‘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.’

All four passengers have since been released, and were not arrested as they had not broken an Austrian laws.

However, they have all been banned from Transavia Airlines, who say that the two girls were also involved in the fight.

In a statement they said: ‘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.’

Breaking News: plane Crash Averted At Akure Airport As Air Peace Aborts Landing Due To Cows Taken Over The Runway


What kind of country is this? Sorry guys, I needed to ask this question. How can herdsmen cross the perimeters of an airport with their cows knowing fully well that it will cause a major crash if anything ever happened. This is outrageous.

According to Wazobia news, several air passengers escaped death in Akure, Ondo State yesterday as cows took over the runway of the Akure Airport and prevented an Air Peace plane from landing. It took combined efforts of the airport security men and other aviation staff to clear the runway of the cows before the aircraft registration number 5NBQQ to land more than 20 minutes after.

The pilot, Captain Williams Inyang was said to have contemplated a return to Lagos when it was taking longer than necessary for the runway to be cleared by the airport security.

Palpable fear had enveloped the passengers, who initially thought the pilot deliberately aborted landing, while the pilot had to hover close to 20 minutes.

According to them;

Today was not the first time a major airport runway was invaded by cows. The Port Harcourt International Airport runway was sometime ago invaded by cows and an approaching Air France plane collided with some of the cows. The expertise of the pilot saved what would have been a tragic incident as the plane was only slightly damaged with passengers suffering shock.

Also, on November 10, 2016, a fully-loaded plane of Air Peace had to abort landing at Sam Mbakwe Airport, Owerri, when the pilot discovered that the runway had been invaded by cows.

OAP Daddy Freeze shared and also reacted to the news ....

If I'm correct, Akure airport has no navigational aid! No ILS, no glideslope, no papi lights!


It's bad enough that you are doing a visual approach, to complicate issues by having cows on the runway is a recipe for disaster! ~FRZ
