Papayas don't smell bad unless they're rotten. Durian smells bad even when it's fresh. I've never eaten it. Some people say it tastes nice, I just got to take their word for it. I'm not going to try.
I imagine it'll be a problem for the airline for quite a while, that smell is pretty persistent even after the fruit is gone. They'll have to leave it parked on the platform somewhere with all the doors open for at least a week to get the smell out.
Lesson for the airline: don't haul durians on passenger aircraft. If you have to do it, use a freighter aircraft for it. Not that it smells any less bad on a freighter, but at least you got nobody complaining about it.

No, you're not! I have seen Westerners squatting by the side of the roads eating durians.
