The passengers who had already boarded were moved of the plane and into the hallway while guards brought the suspicious bag of the plane.
As reported by the Copenhagen Post:
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.And for SAS passengers that is a good thing.
“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. "The worst thing was that the guy who came with the suitcase was really delicious."
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.
Metroxpress Sweden who first covered the story reports that Amanda tweeted about the incident, and it has created a big reaction. She reported that most people who saw her tweet made it a favorite or at least retweeted to their contacts. In Sweden, where the story has gone viral with more than 20,000 shares, some said it was too much to tell the story to the press.
"I do not think it's been embarrassing afterwards. It was embarrassing when I had to pull it [the dildo] out. Now I just think it's funny. I'm very free-spirited and do not really embarrass much,"says Amanda.As you might imagine based on the contents of her luggage, the 20-year-old Amanda was traveling by herself.
The 20-year-old mother also keeps track of how many times the article being shared, but Amanda is not sure whether her father read the story yet.
"I have not heard anything about, but it will be interesting to see his reaction too, says Amanda, who does not think he will find it particularly amusing."
