A crew member says: “Give me some time, we have opened the door.

“I have no clue what happened.

“We are opening more doors so we can have some ventilation.”

The foul smell was noticed shortly after the plane left Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi, India, on 9 February.

IndiGo flight 6E449 was bound for Mumbai, but had to return to Delhi after travellers complained.

Passengers suffered with the overpowering whiff for around half an hour before the pilot decided to turn around.

An IndiGo spokesperson said: “IndiGo flight 6E449 operating from Delhi to Mumbai returned to Delhi due to a momentary foul smell.

The airline added: “We deeply regret the inconvenience caused to all the passengers.”
It is unclear what caused the strong stink on the flight.
