A RYANAIR flight was delayed for more than six hours after a passenger “used the toilet when they shouldn’t have”.
Flight FR3104 was due to travel from Dublin to Amsterdam last Friday, departing at 3:30pm.
Despite the flight time being just over an hour passengers weren’t able to take off for hours due to the incident.
A passenger told local media they were told when they were on the plane that it was caused by a “cracked pipe” with a passenger flushing the toilet when they weren’t meant to.
They said: “There was a bit of a fight at the top of the plane, I think someone had gone in and flushed it when they really shouldn’t have.
“One of the flight crew said there was a cracked pipe, which they had patched up but had broken again, and the captain pulled up after he had started moving.”
Passengers were forced to get off the plane after being told the toilets didn’t work onboard.
They then headed for a new flight at 6:20pm – only for this to be delayed for another hour.
Not only were travellers confused by what was happening, but some said they didn’t have their bags while others were left in “hysterics”
Eventually, they were put on a flight for 8:35pm – six hours later than planned.
A Ryanair spokesperson confirmed the flight was delayed due to “an issue with the aircraft lavatories”.
They apologised for the issues, which were further caused by a delay with Air Traffic control, and said it took off 4 hours and five minutes later than scheduled.
You may also want to be careful what you do in the bathroom – one cabin crew member said they know everything you are doing in there.
The anonymous flight attendant told Buzzfeed: “The toilets are near where we sit.
“No matter how hard you try to cover up the fact that you’re taking a dump, it makes a different noise than if you just go number one, so we always know.”
One thing you don’t have to worry about? Getting sucked into the loo.
And you don’t have to worry about getting locked in the plane toilets either – as there is a secret latch that unlocks them from the outside.
