If you are squeamish or are eating, I would… Stop reading. Trust me.
You have been warned.
There are few things worse than a horror plane story. On a plane, you’re stuck in a confined space, flying through the air, with absolutely nowhere to run.
If someone has horrific plane etiquette, or errr… is unwell… there’s no escape.
You are stuck.
The latest horror story begins when American man Matthew Meehan boarded his Delta flight from Atlanta to Miami last week to find something smelled… bad. Like really bad.
Speaking to Yahoo Lifestyle, Meehan said he noticed his seat neighbour was also uh, struggling, with the smell and had covered their nose.
Meehan bent down under his seat to find a phone charger and discovered the cause of the stench…
“I realised it’s not just a smell, it’s actually faeces and it’s all over the back of my legs, it’s all over the floor, all over the wall of the plane. And I sat in it,” he said.
Somehow, Meehan did not just start screaming and crying and stripping out of his POO COVERED clothing. He and his seat mate calmly went to the front of the plane to notify the cabin crew.
Expecting a biohazard kit, Meehan was surprised when the crew said they had notified cleaners of the poo but it hadn't been cleaned up. Very problematic.
He claimed a flight attendant gave him two paper towels and a bottle of gin so he could clean himself in the bathroom. No gloves, guys.
"It got all over my bare ankles," he said. "I had to take my pants off because it’s on the back of my pants, so faeces, at this point, is transferring to my hands, with no kind of sanitising solution to be able to clean anything with, and only one tiny bottle of gin."
