Share

A Delta flight had to make an emergency landing in Montana to provide passengers with some much needed relief.

A Delta flight from New York City to Seattle had to be diverted hundreds of miles from its destination after the plane's toilets stopped working and passengers couldn't hold it in any longer.

The flight was moving towards Seattle in the United States, situated on the North-West corner of the country, near Canadian border but had to divert mid-way hundreds of kilometres south in Montana so that passengers could attend to nature's call.

It came after the Boeing 757's toilets had stopped working and passengers were queuing up and indicating they needed the toilet, according to an incident report published on AeroInside. While en route from NY, the Boeing 757's toilets stopped working and after a while, passengers just couldn't hold it any longer, forcing the emergency landing.

The flight diverted south to the Billings Logan International Airport and landed there just after 6 p.m., according to Flightaware.com.

But that wasn't the end of the story.

Birth control linked to 20% higher risk of breast cancer
A large study of women in Denmark finds that using hormone-based contraceptives for at least 5 years increases the risk for breast cancer by 20%.

A Delta spokesman said in a statement that the flight landed "without incident" and that the issue was resolved before the plane took off for Seattle.

But, because a gate was not available, the airplane had to taxi to a cargo area where pilots were again told there were several "passengers that needed to find a lavatory very urgently". Passengers on board had to relieve themselves!

Director of aviation and transit at Billings Kevin Ploehn said "ground crews escorted the passengers safely into the terminal where they could do their business and wait while the plane's toilets were serviced".
