"A journalist with Indonesia's Antara news agency who happened to be on the plane reported that several passengers began arguing with flight attendants and nearly came to physical blows", the report notes.
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. 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 airline defended its decision to load durian on the plane but said that going forward it would investigate other methods of transporting the fruit to keep from disrupting passengers.
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".

An Indonesian plane was temporarily grounded after passengers complained about an overwhelming smell of durian in the cabin.

"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".
Eventually, they were all asked to leave the plane while the crew unloaded the durian.
