NY to Seattle flight makes unscheduled stop for bathroom break

Delta Air Lines flight airplane landing

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

On Dec. 2, a Delta Air Lines flight from NY to Seattle was forced to divert hundreds of miles for an emergency bathroom break in Billings, Mont., because of problems with the plane's toilets, according to the Aviation Herald, which reports flight and aviation incidents worldwide.

According to aviation reports, Delta Flight 453 began its six-hour journey across country easily enough, but then toilets stopped working and... were full. 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.

MI at Ohio State
Ohio State actually projects him to cornerback and he can also provide some special teams value immediately in the return game. MI regained the lead 60-56 with a 7-0 run, but the Buckeyes outscored the Wolverines 14-2 the rest of the way.

A Delta spokesman said in a statement that the flight landed "without incident" and that the issue was resolved before the plane took off for Seattle.

So the flight, traveling near the Canadian border, diverted hundreds of miles south to Billings where it landed about 6 p.m. Bad news is the stop ended up being 3 1/2 hours - but we're betting the toilets were working the rest of the trip and passengers were much more relaxed.

But that wasn't the end of the story.

The driver of the vehicle , a woman, was injured and taken to hospital but her injuries are not thought to be life threatening. News website Police Hour has set up a JustGiving page to raise money to support Dixon's family.

Cabin crew were unable to fix the problem and the smell became unbearable for passengers seated nearby, forcing the plane to turn around near Brussels and land at Heathrow Airport. Once there, pilots were again told there were several "passengers that needed to find a lavatory very urgently", according to the incident report.

The good news is the ground crew escorted passengers inside to an actual bathroom to relieve themselves of those built-up pressures.

The plane's toilets were serviced during the unscheduled stop and the vehicle was refueled so it could take off once the passengers were back aboard.
