A Delta flight from Atlanta to Barcelona was forced to turn around and make an emergency landing after a passenger “had diarrhea all the way through the plane”.
The Airbus A350 aircraft was two hours into a transatlantic flight from Georgia to Spain on Friday when the pilot asked to come back because of the fecal fiasco.
An alleged Federal Aviation Authority flight strip was posted on Reddit, which appeared to confirm the situation involved “biohazard” all over the plane. Cleaning crews were able to scrub down the aircraft once it landed in Atlanta since flight records show it was used for another flight.
Let's get right into this, there's no coming back from forcing a transatlantic flight to turn back around because you diarrhea'd throughout the entire plane. Zero. Just cannot happen under any circumstances. Life might have been great before that instance, but it's all over.
Now we've all encountered untimely situations with our bowels over the course of our lives, but how do you get to a spot where you've caused "biohazard" to spread all over a commercial airline. Just listen to the conversation the pilot had with air traffic control.
Thankfully to this point in my life I've never caused a plane to turnaround. Feel safe assuming most people reading this blog can say the same. I presume if that ever happened I'd just end my life out of embarrassment. Now sometimes things are out of your control. Having something like a heart attack mid-flight, that would cause such a maneuver from the plane, is obviously not preventable. Forcing the plane to turn around because you shit everywhere is genuinely impossible to fathom.
Like what do you mean all over the plane? We thinking maybe the person mistakenly trusted a fart in their seat and then had it leak all over the aisle as they ran to the bathroom? That's the only scenario I'm playing out in my head and it's not a good one. Nightmare fuel. Before the plane returns to its destination I'm pulling the emergency door and falling out. It's for the best.
Thankfully for this person, they remain unnamed at this current moment in time. If their identity is ever revealed however, I think you just gotta end it all. To my knowledge neither Jersey Jerry nor Chaps were on this flight, so that's a relief. There's no way to live your life in any reasonable manner once people know you're the person who diarrhea'd throughout an entire airplane. The nightmares I'd constantly relive in my head would be impossible shake. If suicide isn't your kinda speed you need to go into hiding for a few years and return with a whole new identity.
Shoutout to the crew who had to clean that shit show after everyone deplaned. They're the real MVPs.
“Our teams worked as quickly and safely as possible to thoroughly clean the airplane and get our customers to their final destination,” a Delta spokesperson said. “We sincerely apologize to our customers for the delay and inconvenience to their travel plans.”
Also, for a long flight like that from Atlanta to Barcelona there were a probably a few people who popped a xanax and expected to wake up in Spain safe and sound. Imagine doing that and opening your eyes back in Georgia where you then find out you're going to be delayed hours before getting back off the ground. All because someone had the most explosive diarrhea in human history. Unbelievable.
