Delta flight makes emergency bathroom pit stop in Montana


It's about six hours from NY to Seattle via plane, which was too long, recently, for a Delta 757 that had to make an emergency stop in Billings on Saturday night.

A direct Delta flight from NY to Seattle made an unplanned stop in Billings, Mont., because passengers needed to use the bathroom.

The Aviation Herald reported that after the toilets stopped working, passengers began lining up and indicating that they needed to use the bathroom.

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.

Davidse leads with 63 at broom-and-fork Joburg Open

Delta Flight 453 from Kennedy Airport landed safely in Billings at about 5 p.m. Saturday, the Federal Aviation Administration said Wednesday.

A rolling staircase was used to allow fliers in need to deplane quickly and "find relief of built-up pressures", per the Delta report. The airport grounds crew rolled a stairway over to the plane and escorted passengers into terminal where they could "find relief of built-up pressures". The plane was also refueled.

Though flight being diverted to the Billings airport is not unusual, but the reason, in this case, is certainly not normal. "That's why the flight was diverted", the FAA said in a statement. "That can't be very pleasant".
