Smelly poo ‘causes British Airways plane to turn back’
Someone did a poo so stinky it caused a plane to turn back.
Passengers expecting to fly to Dubai were disappointed when the pilot announced they were going back to Heathrow Airport because someone had dropped ‘a smelly poo in the toilet’.
People on board had been complaining of a stench, according to Tory councillor Abhishek Sachdev who was travelling, and it eventually got so bad it became a health and safety concern.
He had initially tweeted about the strange incident and later complained about being made to wait hours for another flight.
Insane! Our BA flight to Dubai returned back to Heathrow because of a smelly poo in the toilet! 15hrs until next flight… #britishairways

A British Airways spokesperson told the Metro: “We’re very sorry for the discomfort to our customers.
“We provided them with hotel accommodation and rescheduled the flight to depart the next day.”
