Air Berlin Passengers Force Change of Plane

Passengers on an Air Berlin flight from Nuremberg to Faro, Portugal, forced the airline to change their aircraft after 2 unrelated delays.  The plane was originally delayed and returned to the terminal after a cockpit display was broken.  The plane was fixed and taxied again, only to have a flight attendant pass out.  Passengers, who were possibly jittery after the recent Spanair crash in Madrid, passed around a petition to change airplanes (even though the first thing was minor and the second had nothing to do with the plane).  Air Berlin, sensing a riot, change airplanes (though I’m not sure why).
