BRITISH AIRWAYS FLIGHT ABORTED MINUTES AFTER TAKE-OFF BECAUSE OF A SMELLY ODOUR

A town Councillor from Hertfordshire has revealed that a British Airways flight to Dubai was forced to return to London due to a foul odour emanating from an overflowing toilet. Hertsmere Councillor Abhishek Sachdev, who represents Potters Bar Parkfield, said the seven-hour flight was aborted "because of a smelly poo in the toilet"It was gathered that the cabin crew unsuccessfully tried to fix the problem, but the flight was forced to turn around when the odour became unbearable for passengers. The Tory Councillor said the flight departed on time Thursday night and everything seemed fine until the captain made an announcement about 30 minutes after take-off when the flight was over Belgium.
Mr. Sachdev told MailOnline: "The pilot made an announcement requesting senior cabin crew, and we knew something was a bit odd. About 10 minutes later he said you may have noticed there's a quite pungent smell coming from one of the toilets. He said it was liquid faecal excrement, those are the words he used. He said it's not a technical fault with the plane, and he was very adamant about that." Passengers were then told that the plane would be forced to return to London for health and safety reasons, said Sachdev.


After the plane landed at Heathrow, the Councillor tweeted: "Insane! Our BA flight to Dubai returned back to Heathrow because of a smelly poo in the toilet! 15hrs until next flight.."

It is believed that passengers were due to board another flight, but what was due to be a three-hour wait turned into a 15 hour delay.

A British Airways spokesperson told reporters that: "We're very sorry for the discomfort to our customers. We provided them with hotel accommodation and rescheduled the flight to depart the following day's lunchtime on an alternative aircraft."
