A direct Delta flight from New York City to Seattle was forced to make an unplanned stop in Billings, Montana — for an emergency bathroom break.
While enroute, the Boeing 757’s toilets “ceased functioning, with passengers queuing up and indicating they needed to visit the toilet,” according to a Delta incident report. “All toilets were full and passengers needed to ‘go really bad.”
Passengers were in such an emergency that the plane had to taxi to a cargo area to let passengers out via a stairway to “disembark to find relief of built-up pressures” when a gate was not immediately available.
