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.

Two Super-Earths Located Just 111 Light-Years From Earth
Alien life! The remote exoplanet is outside our solar system, of course, its similarities to Earth are nevertheless impressive. It also turns away from his own sun that can accommodate life, water on its surface, that is, from where everything begins.

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.

World's largest Starbucks opens in China and it's 30000 square feet
Dubbed the "first fully immersive coffee wonderland in China ", it's something of a caffeine-fueled Disneyland. Since 2016, it has been on pace to open an average of one new store every day for five years, CNN reported.

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.
