A British Airways passenger defecated on the floor of the plane and smeared it into the seats — sickening travelers, according to reports taking unruly passenger behavior to new lows. The passenger, whose name was not released, began to “flip out” in protest just before the flight from London’s Heathrow Airport to Lagos, Nigeria, on Oct. 7.
He took off his pants and defecated on the aircraft’s main floor. He then began rubbing the feces into the carpet, curtain and seats. Emergency services officials came, according to a witnesses.
“During boarding a passenger stripped from the waist down and defecated on the galley floor. He sat in it and rubbed it onto the galley floor and aisle carpets,” the witnesses’ report states. “He walked in it and started running up the aisle as far as Door 4. He smeared his arms to elbow in fecal matter, and door seats as he went.”
“The curtains and carpets were severely contaminated. Very important that a hygienic biohazard and deep clean is carried out and properly supervised and signed off,” a report states.
Flight BA075 was delayed three hours while the Boeing 777-336 aircraft was taken out of service and sanitized. The report called the event a “hygienic biohazard.”
