A Delta flight was forced to turn around after a traveler suffered a bout of diarrhea in the aisle. It ‘ran all the way through the plane’.
A Real Life Sh*t Show
On September 1, the 336 passengers aboard Delta Airlines Flight 194, a red-eye flight from Atlanta to Barcelona.
The transatlantic Delta Air Lines flight was forced to turn around after a passenger had a “medical issue,” which audio from the flight deck suggests involved a passenger having diarrhea in the aircraft’s cabin.
The plane was two hours into the eight-hour journey from Atlanta to Barcelona, Spain, when it made a U-turn, data from Flightradar24 indicates.
Delta told CNN that the flight was delayed just over eight hours, but landed in Barcelona without further incident on Saturday at 5.16 p.m. local time.
“Our teams worked as quickly and safely as possible to get our customers to their final destination,” a spokesperson said. “We sincerely apologize to our customers for the delay and inconvenience to their travel plans.”
The flight did not take off again on the trip to Barcelona until it was thoroughly cleaned and had the carpet ripped out, about five hours later, after 2:30 am.
Passengers confirmed that the mess did indeed run the length of one cabin aisle. DL194’s flight data on FlightRadar24 shows the aircraft’s about-face over the skies of Virginia.
