Plane's Unusual Emergency: Fliers Had to Go to Bathroom

08 Décembre, 2017, 00:56 | Auteur: Auguste Feret

Airplanes have had to make emergency landings and unplanned stops for a variety of reasons, but for a potty break?

While 180 miles north of Billings, Montana, Delta flight DL-453 had an unfortunate realization: All of the bathrooms had stopped functioning, the toilets were full and passengers "needed to "go really bad", according to The Aviation Herald. While en route from NY, the Boeing 757's toilets stopped working and after a while, passengers just couldn't hold it any longer, forcing the emergency landing.

Cabin crew could have taken the "parent on a road trip" route, which would involve making sure everybody went to the bathroom before taking off cause it's six hours to Seattle and we aren't stopping.

The ruling by Supreme Court magistrate Pablo Llarena also allowed six others detained over the matter to leave prison after paying 100,000 euros each.

The flight diverted south to the Billings Logan International Airport and landed there just after 6 p.m., according to Flightaware.com. The plane had to taxi to cargo areas where the crew rolled a stairway so that passengers could "disembark to find relief of built-up pressures".

A rolling staircase was used to allow fliers in need to deplane quickly and "find relief of built-up pressures", per the Delta report. In the meantime, plane's toilets were also serviced and the plane was refuelled so that it could take off again.

Ploehn told the Billings Gazette that while flights are diverted to the airport on occasion, it's rare for them to stop to let passengers use the bathroom.
