A journalist with Indonesia'sAntara news agency who was on the plane reported that several passengers began arguing with flight attendants and nearly came to blows.
Travelers aboard a Sriwajiya Air flight from Bengkulu, in Indonesia, to Jakarta complained of the odor prior to takeoff, insisting that the airline remove the spiky, smelly fruit - of which there was almost 4,500 pounds in the cargo hold - from the flight, per The Straits Times.
Amir Zidane uploaded the clip to Facebook after the incident which took place on Monday.
Videos circulating online showed verbal altercations on the tarmac between disgruntled travellers and ground staff and the fruit finally being taken off the plane after the flight had been delayed for one hour.
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 not classified as a hazardous material to be transported on a plane", Abdul said.
Crew allegedly told him that the smell would go away once the flight was in the air.
Some passengers even argued that apart from the unpleasant smell, they were also concerned by the extra weight on board.
Eventually, they were all asked to leave the plane while the crew unloaded the fruit.
Considered the "king of fruits" in many South-east Asian countries, the distinctive odour of durian is very divisive - food writer Richard Sterling once described it as "turpentine and onions, garnished with a gym sock".
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.
Sriwajiya Air later said the airline was well within its rights to carry the stinky fruit in cargo.
The head of Bengkulu airport, Anies Wardhana told local news outlet Detik the airport would "evaluate" future packing situations so that they would "not cause passenger discomfort".
