Passengers evacuated TWICE from Uruguayan airlineRex

It's bad enough being moved from one plane to another once... but twice? Patience was probably wearing thin.

Passengers on a flight with Uraguayan airline, Pluna, were evacuated from two planes before they'd even taken off.

In a statement, the airline said passengers had boarded a flight from Montevideo, Buenos Aires, only to be told to disembark following a technical problem in the fuel system.

According to, firefighters were even brought to the scene.

The passengers were put on another plane, but the pilot then aborted take-off because of strange smell, which was subsequently thought to be odour from a recent maintenance.

Travellers were put on another plane and, finally, successfully took off.

Well, they do say third time lucky...
