Passengers booked on a Sriwijaya Air flight from Bengkulu province in Sumatra to Jakarta on Monday complained to staff after smelling the fruit and refused to get on the plane, repulsed by the pungent payload and concerned about the extra weight on board.
A reporter with Indonesia's Antara news agency, Boyke Ledy Watra, who was also on the plane told the Jakarta Post that "several passengers argued, occasionally nearly coming to blows, with flight crew members before deciding to leave the aircraft".
In April, the stench of rotting durian in a library at Melbourne's RMIT University led to a mass evacuation.
The flight, which was scheduled to take off at 10.40am was subsequently delayed by an hour while the fruit was removed.

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".
That took nearly an hour and 2 tons were removed, but at the end of it, the plane took off from Bengkulu in Sumatra.
