Imagine thinking you were only a flight away from your dream holiday to Dubai only to be told that the plane was turning back for ‘health and safety’ reason, due to a poo that was so smelly.
That is exactly what happened to the passengers of one British Airways flight containing councillor Abhishek Sachdev, who was not the perpetrator of the lethal poo, but managed to take to Twitter and get 15 minutes of fame from the incident. He told his followers and the media that the pilot even made an announcement about the ‘liquid faecal excrement’ along with offering his apologies that the flight had to be cancelled.
BA were understandably unhappy about the situation but did try to placate their disappointed travellers by providing them with a hotel room for the night and rescheduling the flight for the day after.
Luckily there were no reports of the hotel having to be evacuated for a similar reason so we can only assume the offender got it out of their system.
