Default Malfunctioning toilets cause Delta flight to make emergency landinghalfway through flight to Seattle

When you really gotta go, the plane’s gotta land.

A Delta Airlines flight from Kennedy Airport had to make an
emergency pit stop in Montana so passengers could take a much-
needed bathroom break, officials said Wednesday.

Malfunctioning bathrooms on the Boeing 757 caused a real
emergency Saturday — forcing the plane to land at Billings Logan
International Airport more than halfway through the six-hour
flight to Seattle.

“All toilets were full and passengers needed to ‘go really
bad,’” according to a Delta incident report uncovered by the
Billings Gazette.

Once they landed relief was still nowhere in sight — because of
the unscheduled stop, no gates were available for the plane,
which had to be taken to a cargo area to unload several
“passengers that needed to find a lavatory very urgently,”
according to the report.

Ground crews had to bring a rolling stairway to the plane so
passengers could rush to the nearest restroom and “find relief
of built-up pressures,” the report said.

Passengers were allowed to get back on the plane and continue on
their way once the toilets were fixed and the plane was
refueled, Kevin Ploehn, the Billings director of aviation and
transit, told the paper.
