This flight was awfully smelly!

Etiquette on aeroplanes is a hotly debated topic.
Everything from whether or not you should move seats to allow other people to sit together to whether or not it’s acceptable to leave the window shutter open all night long.
Or if taking off your shoes on a flight is acceptable.
Now since we all have different perspectives, the latter is actually contentious. Some of us think it’s fine to wear socks, while others are quite fine without them.
Others believe that footwear should keep firmly in place on your feet regardless of how far you are travelling.
We can probably all agree that we do not want a stranger’s bare feet close by.
As a result, when one person on a plane decided to put his bare foot on the armrest in front of him, everyone was outraged.
Additionally, to make matters worse, the man reportedly left it there throughout the whole three-hour trip.
A Reddit user shared a snap to the ‘I’m The Main Character’ subreddit, with the caption: “Do you say something if you’re sitting there?”
Accompanied by the photo of the (faceless) man’s leg raised up to rest his bare foot on the edge of his fellow passenger’s armrest, the user added: “This was a 3 hour flight and he kept those puppies up the whole time.”
The enigmatic foot-friendly flyer seems to have removed the one sandal to possibly find some comfort and extend his leg.
Additionally, several individuals expressed shock and said it made them “never want to travel again.”
Another put: “Some people are raised by wolves. Teach your children to respect public spaces ffs.”
While one admitted they wouldn’t say something straight away, they would: “Give them the elbow first, then if they put them up again I ask politely with a tartness to it. The third time I try to smash a toe or two.”
Others also shared their acts of vengeance for the bare-footed man: “I accidentally spill my sugar-laden drink on someone’s foot if I’m sitting there.”
And one even said: “I wouldn’t say anything. I’d just take my shoes and socks off, turn sideways, and put my feet up too. On his armrest.”
Another gave a bit of context to the situation and claimed: “It’s actually his wife and child ahead of him. They couldn’t get the adjacent seat. This has been posted before.”
Passengers Recall What Happened As Fellow Traveller Had Horrific Diarrhoea On Plane
The passengers had to endure quite the flight!
People on the airline remember what happened when a fellow passenger experienced terrible diarrhoea.
One unfortunate passenger on a Delta Airlines flight was forced to do a U-turn after experiencing a terrible case of the runs.
On September 1, the Airbus A350 was flying from Atlanta to Barcelona when all hell literally let loose, including the poor guy’s bowels. Look it over:
The man, whose identity is unknown, had tried to make it to the restroom stalls but had run out of time and had to do his business down the centre of the aisle of the craft.
If you’re reading this while drinking tea, I apologise.
“This is a biohazard issue,” the pilot said to air traffic control, recorded from LiveATC.com and shared on X, formerly Twitter.
“We’ve had a passenger who’s had diarrhoea all the way through the airplane, so they want us to come back to Atlanta.”
beyond a series of transfers involving both passengers and crew, Flight DL194 finally arrived in Barcelona at 5:10 p.m. the next day, eight hours beyond its scheduled arrival time, according to information from Flightradar24.
he airline has since issued a statement on the matter, explaining: “Delta Flight 194 from Atlanta to Barcelona returned to Atlanta following an onboard medical issue.”
“Our teams worked as quickly and safely as possible to thoroughly clean the airplane and get our customers to their final destination,” a Delta spokesperson said.
“We sincerely apologise to our customers for the delay and inconvenience to their travel plans.”
Unsurprisingly, footage of the awful incident making its way across social media depicting the cleanup aboard the aeroplane quickly became popular.
In the brief video, paper towels can be seen lining the aisle and attempting to remove the numerous dark sludge streaks.
What a beautiful image.
People who were unfortunate enough to be on the trip have now recounted just how it was around the time.
“Both my wife and I were on the flight,” wrote one Twitter user. “It was a mess.
“The pilots made the right decision to turn around. The ground crew ripped out the carpet and put new in. Considering the circumstances, the ground crew did a great job, along the attendants and the pilots.”
Another passenger who also drew the short straw said it was the worst smell imaginable.
“My partner was on that flight! It was pretty bad. It was dribbled down the aisle, smelled horrible,” they said.
“The vanilla scented disinfectant used on it only made it smell like vanilla s**t.
Well, it’s not like you can even crack a window open.
Airline Pilot Explains Where Your Poo Goes When You Flush It On A Plane
The pilot has more than 500,000 TikTok followers and 700,000 Instagram followers under the handle @flywithgarrett.
He often uploads content about his travels and interesting facts about planes.
The most recent query from one of Garrett’s followers was what occurs when people use the lavatory on an aeroplane.
And it’s safe to say that his response has left people in awe.
On TikTok, Garrett captions his post: “Ever curious where it goes when you’re on the aeroplane?”
He explains in the video that many people believe that when a plane’s toilet is emptied midflight, human fluids just “dump out” of the aircraft.
As Garrett explains, this is undoubtedly not the case: “When you’re on an aeroplane and you have to go, where does it go?
“Did you know that whenever you flush the toilet on the aircraft, it actually doesn’t dump out into the population down below?
“It goes through plumbing to the rear of the aircraft and the seal compartments where the ground crew at the destination will remove all that waste.
“On a 747 – on a long haul flight – toilets can be flushed over a thousand times, creating over 320 gallons of waste.”
He adds: “That’s a lot.”
The clip has been viewed a staggering 4.3 million times and thousands have taken to the comments to share their thoughts.
Shocked, one viewer responds: “Since I was a kid I used to think when over a sea the pilot flushes it out. Omg!”
“Yeah! I had to ask a flight attendant. Was really interesting,” another adds.
Tagging a friend, a third person says: “See, I told you they didn’t dump out.”
“I thought they dropped it in the ocean,” a fourth admits.
While another says: “I just haven’t thought about this like ever.”
Many others have taken to the comments to say they can’t believe people ever thought otherwise.
One TikToker questions: “Other actual people believe that it would get expelled from the aircraft to the population below? And if so, do these people vote?”
Another asks: “Wait… people actually think it dumps out below?
“So they think there’s poo falling out of the sky and it’s not the birds?”
“I still don’t get it that there
