British Airways Flight Force To Land For An “Odorous” Reason

A British Airways flight left Heathrow Airport in London destined for Dubai, a 7-hour flight. After the plane was airborne for a mere 30 minutes, the pilot made an announcement: “You may have noticed there’s a quite pungent smell coming from one of the toilets.” The pilot went on to explain that it was “liquid fecal excrement.” The plane immediately turned back to Heathrow, where passengers were put up in a hotel overnight, as another flight wasn’t available for 15 hours. When planes are flying at an altitude of 33,000 feet, the cabin has to be pressurized, which means 50% of the air is being recycled. The smell was so horrific that the pilot made the decision to head back to the airport for the health and safety of the passengers. While there was no word on who "dropped the bomb,” it’s expected that there was probably a very embarrassed passenger onboard.
