Delta flight makes emergency bathroom pit stop in Montana

Delta flight makes emergency bathroom pit stop in Montana

A direct flight from NY to Seattle become indirect when the toilets stopped working and the plane had to stop in Montana for a bathroom break.

That is, however, why a cross-country Delta flight bound for Seattle on Saturday had to touch down at Billings Logan International Airport in Billings, Montana, first.

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.

The report continued, "All toilets were full and passengers needed to 'go really bad'".

According to the Billings Gazette, a Delta incident report, Gazette, 'ceased functioning, with passengers queuing up and indicating they needed to visit the toilet'.


Delta says ground crews rolled a stairway to the Boeing 757 so passengers could 'disembark to find relief of built-up pressures'.

Travelers were escorted to the terminal so the plane could be serviced and refueled for takeoff.

The flight was moving towards Seattle in the United States, situated on the North-West corner of the country, near Canadian border but had to divert mid-way hundreds of kilometres south in Montana so that passengers could attend to nature's call. "That can't be very pleasant".

Previous year 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.
