Talk about getting stuck with the worst seat on the plane! A woman was recently trapped in a bathroom as a British Airways plane sped down the runway and took off.
The woman in question had paid for a real seat on the plane that was traveling from Amsterdam’s Schipol Airport to Gatwick Airport. It turns out that the flight had already been delayed for 30 minutes. The young woman thought she had enough time to visit the restroom before they took off. Not so – the flight crew was in a rush and in their hurry, forgot to check to see that everyone was in their seat and buckled in. In fact, some of the passengers were still putting luggage into the overhead storage as it pulled away.
When she realized what was happening, the female passenger tried to get out of the bathroom and back to her seat. But the flight attendants yelled at her to stay put as she opened the door, saying that it was extremely dangerous. She was finally allowed to sheepishly slink back her seat when the plane reached cruising altitude.
The crew made sure not to make the same mistake twice on that flight. Just before landing, the pilot told passengers to get back to their seats and not to use the bathrooms.
If you’re going to have the crap scared out of you, we guess that she was in the perfect spot for it to happen. Do you think that she should be compensated for the flight or should airplane toilets be fitted for seatbelts? Who was at fault – the woman who couldn’t hold it or the impatient flight crew?
