Passengers were delayed by eight hours because the jet they were supposed to travel from Atlanta to Barcelona never made it to Spain and they were forced to transfer to another plane.
SPEAKER ON THE BUS: “Ladies and gentlemen, we are currently experiencing a biological emergency.” Last Friday, September 1st, an airplane owned by the American company Delta was halfway over the Atlantic Ocean between the United States and Spain when it was forced to make an unexpected U-turn for an unusual cause.
The pilot of an Airbus A350 stated two hours into the flight that he would not be landing in Barcelona as planned but would instead be making an emergency return to Atlanta, Georgia. Using the moniker “Atlanta,” a recording was posted to Twitter.
In the comments section that followed the post, passengers who had been on the flight at the time corroborated the highly improbable scenario. For instance, one online user writes, “It was flowing down the alley and the smell was terrible.” Neither the name of the sick passenger nor the nature of the illness has been disclosed. Delta used the terms “medical issue” and “biological emergency” in an ominous manner.
Passengers were allowed to exit as soon as the plane touched down in Atlanta, and the company that owned the plane immediately began cleaning it. In a statement, Delta stated its staff “worked as quickly as possible to deep clean the aircraft and get our customers to their final destination.” She went on to say that the company was sorry for the disruption to their clients' vacation plans.
Traveling to Barcelona on a far more pleasant journey was possible after the passengers and crew missed their connecting flight by eight hours.
Delta chose to return to the airport after a passenger had diarrhea “through” the plane.
A video shows the “onboard medical emergency” that forced a US airliner back to Atlanta from Spain after barely two hours in the air. A person with digestive issues caused an “onboard medical emergency” by leaving a foul diarrhea trail.
Five hours were spent by maintenance workers cleaning and repairing the aisle carpet after the Delta Airlines Airbus A350 had to make an unexpected early landing.
Passengers, including the one who had been vomiting and had diarrhea, were permitted back on the plane after an eight-hour delay, and the flight made it to Barcelona on Saturday without further incident.
Passengers on board the plane reportedly posted to social media about the flight crew doing their best to clean up the mess using paper towels and scented disinfectant. Even though it made the cabin smell like “vanilla shit,” as one passenger put it, it served no other purpose.
Delta Airlines said that an “onboard medical issue” was at blame.
Our staff worked as quickly as they could to ensure that our customers arrived at their destination safely and on schedule. A statement was issued saying, “We sincerely apologize to our customers for the delay and inconvenience this will cause to their travel plans.”
This happened a week after Air Canada apologized to two passengers who were removed from a trip from Seattle to Montreal for complaining about being made to sit in vomit-covered seats. The flight was departing from Montreal and heading to Seattle.
