How was your flight?
« on: September 05, 2023, 12:48:34 PM »
Uh....

Making me ill just thinking about it.

Quote
A Delta flight from Atlanta to Barcelona was forced to turn around after a passenger on board suffered a bout of diarrhea which 'ran all the way through the plane'.

Flight DL194 had already departed Georgia on schedule at 8:47 pm, Friday September 1, and was over Virginia when the pilots decided to abandon the journey.

In a text message sent to Air Traffic Control, the captain was succinct in explaining the problem: 'Divert to ATL — passenger diarrhea all over aircraft — biohazard.'

Air traffic control audio recordings also reveal one of the pilots confirming the situation over the radio.

'It's just a biohazard issue, we had a passenger who had diarrhea all the way through the airplane so they want us to come back to Atlanta.'

So I am guessing there was a trail of leakage as the passenger ran to the aircraft toilet.

I guess there are worse things that could happen on a flight, but that has to be in the top ten.

Certainly more likely than the super soaker scenario.

As bad as I feel for the people exposed to it, I actually feel pretty bad for the person who had it. Imagine the embarrassment from the time of the incident to the plane landing. No place to hide on a plane and everyone staring at you, talking about you, and probably videoing you.

Two Air Canada passengers were recently kicked off their flight for not wanting to sit in puke contaminated seats.  Sounds like a fun experience.

If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

Liberals believe one should never let reason, logic and facts get in the way of a good emotional argument.

What was the flight crew and airline thinking? Anyone would say no.

That was exactly it.  They weren't thinking.

I have 3 international flights coming up on the next 4 months (post divorce pledge to myself to travel more)

I hope this sh*t doesn't happen.

You can't tell.  I had a bout of explosive diarrhea about a year ago, I don't know from what.  Fortunately, in the house.

I tell ya true, this kind of thing is not jokeworthy.

Last June I got something. My guess is a roto or noro virus. A solid week of stomach pain, intestinal cramps, the most foul gas you could imagine, and bouts of diarrhea, hitting worst, oddly enough, at night. Never knew if I was going to release gas or something worse, and no way in hell would have ever had the courage to "trust a fart."

I remember my poor daughter being about 5 and with this sad look on her face thinking I was going to yell at her and everything she destroyed. Said I thought it was just a stinker. Valuable dad life lesson time, never trust a fart. Pretty sure that was a 3am shower and change the bed episode.

In my experience, it isn't that I couldn't tell, its that I didn't notice the signs.  Might be hindsight.   :lol:
