Delta Flight Forced to Make Emergency Landing for Bathroom Break

Delta Flight Forced to Make Emergency Landing for Bathroom Break

According to the Aviation Herald, the plane was flying from NY on its way to Seattle when the passengers began to form a line at the bathroom saying that they had to "go really bad".

For fliers from NY to Seattle, the 6-hour flight was too long as pressure started mounting and a plane had to make an unscheduled potty break.

But a Delta flight that was supposed to be a direct flight from New York City to Seattle encountered an unusual in-air malfunction: the bathrooms.

Enroute, the toilets of Boeing 757's toilets "ceased functioning, with passengers queuing up and indicating they needed to visit the toilet", the incident report filed by Delta Airlines said.

The album will follow just over a year after the Cuban-American singer-songwriter announced her departure from the girl group. She continued: "I made a decision to call it by my name, because this is where this chapter in my life ended".

The aircraft then taxied on the runway as there were "passengers that needed to find a lavatory very urgently", the report stated.

A stairway was eventually rolled up to the plane so people could hop off and finally relieve themselves. The plane was also refueled so it could take off again, he said.

Kevin Ploehn, the Billings director of aviation and transit, said ground crews escorted the passengers safely into the terminal where they could do their business and wait while the plane's toilets were serviced. "That can't be very pleasant".

A year ago an OpenSkies transatlantic flight from just outside NY to Paris was diverted to Shannon Airport in Ireland after a "serious problem" with the Boeing 767's aircraft rendered them unusable.
