Incontinental Airlines

The skies just aren't as friendly as they used to be:
    Sewage flows down aisles of trans-Atlantic flight

    UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash.– Passengers on a Continental Airlines flight had to hold their noses for hours as sewage overflowed from toilets while they were high over the Atlantic.

    "To be blatantly honest, I was more nervous than I had ever been on a flight," said Collin Brock. The University Place man was on board Continental Airlines flight 1970 from Amsterdam to Newark, New Jersey last week when things went bad.

    "I've never felt so offended in all my life. I felt like I had been physically abused and neglected. I was forced to sit next to human excrement for seven hours," said Brock.

    That's after lavatories - in the middle of a flight filled with passengers - started spewing sewage.

    "Sickening. It's a nauseating smell. It's very uncomfortable," said Brock.

    It was last Wednesday afternoon when his flight left Amsterdam, but roughly two hours into it, the passengers were told the lavatories were out of commission. An unplanned landing in Shannon, Ireland was made to fix the problem.

    A pit stop became an overnight stay. The next day, the same plane headed for its original destination of Newark, New Jersey, but just after takeoff, the sewage overflow began. This time, there was no turning around.
Flying port-o-potties. Oh, yeah. This is sure to boost confidence in the airline industry.
