Someone pooh-pooed in the toilet during a British Airways flight from London to Dubai last week and the smell was so bad … it forced the pilot to abort the flight mid-air.
According to British politician Abhishek Sachdev who was on the Thursday flight, passengers were complaining about a stench emanating from the toilet … a stench so powerful that the pilot had to announce that ‘a smelly poo in the toilet’ will force him to abort the flight for health safety reasons.
‘About 10 minutes later he said you may have noticed there’s a quite pungent smell coming from one of the toilets,’ Sachdev told Daily Mail. ‘He said it was liquid faecal excrement, those are the words he used. He said it’s not a technical fault with the plane, and he was very adamant about that.’
A British Airways spokesperson later told Metro in a statement, ‘We’re very sorry for the discomfort to our customers. We provided them with hotel accommodation and rescheduled the flight to depart the next day.’
