Planes are always getting cancelled or delayed. It’s a pretty common occurrence and most travelers know that it’s bound to happen to them at some point. Whether it be a maintenance issue or instrument malfunction, sometimes these things can happen. Passengers on a recent British Airways flight had to deal with a delayed flight, but the reason why is shocking.

Believe it or not, a plane on the way to Dubai was forced to land due to a smell that was emanating from it’s onboard toilet. Passengers were surprised when the pilot announced that they had to turn the plane around because of the smell. Reports claim that passengers began to complain about the smell and were worried that it would become a health concern due to how strong it had become. Tory councillor Abhishek Sachdev was on the plane and stated:

“About 10 minutes later he said you may have noticed there’s a quite pungent smell coming from one of the toilets. He said it was liquid fecal excrement, those are the words he used. He said it’s not a technical fault with the plane, and he was very adamant about that.”
