Welcome on board to a flight filled with sumo wrestlers

When you hear of some flights being fully packed, it is quite unlikely that sumo wrestlers would come to mind. But apparently, they do fly. And in packs too. Recently, 29 of them from the historic sumo neighborhood of Ryogoku in Tokyo boarded a plane to Okinoshima in Shimana Prefecture of Japan for some heavy workouts with their trainers on the rural island.

Looking at the snaps taken inside the plane, our sumos seemed pretty cool and collected and everything seemed as per normal except for one missing aisle. There is hardly space for the trolley to move pass and it might be a little difficult to reach the loo on that particular trip.
