Delta flight makes emergency bathroom stop in Montana
BILLINGS, Mont. — A Delta flight from New York City to Seattle had to make a stop in Billings after the plane’s toilets stopped working and passengers couldn’t hold it any longer.
The Billings Gazette reported the direct flight diverted hundreds of miles south Saturday to make the emergency bathroom stop.
Delta said that upon landing in Billings, the plane had to taxi to a cargo area because a gate was not available. Ground crews rolled a stairway to the airplane so passengers could “disembark to find relief of built-up pressures,” Delta said.
A flight from New York City to Seattle can take about six hours.
