Passengers kept waiting for flights are used to airlines blaming the delays on so-called ‘technical issues’.

But for a SAS flight leaving from Sweden last weekend, the ‘technical issues’ were rather unusual and left many of its passengers ‘buzzing’ with delight.

Scheduled to fly to Split in Croatia, the flight was delayed on the ground due to a vibrating dildo in a passenger’s bag.

To make matters worse for the bag’s owner, she was forced, in front of her rather bemused co-passengers, to remove the batteries from the device, which had been vibrating away, alerting airport security.

“Some of the passengers sighed, but most thought it was amusing,” Amanda, 20, the most embarrassed woman on the plane in question, told Metroxpress Sweden.

A one-off 
Henrik Edström, a spokesperson for SAS in Sweden, confirmed that the plane had been delayed, but couldn’t provide a reason, as the plane had only been delayed for a short period of time.

Edström, who hadn’t heard of a similar case before, maintained that vibrating dildos delaying planes were not a common occurrence on SAS flights.

While the plane ended up not being overly delayed, the flight turned out to be a slightly longer one than usual for Amanda.

As the contents of her bag may have already suggested, she was travelling alone.
