According to reports, a British Airways passenger stripped off to their underwear, urinated on the plane’s floor, covered themselves in their own faeces, ran towards other passengers, and wiped the faeces all over the carpets and drapes in the cabin.
The horrific occurrence allegedly happened on October 7 at London Heathrow Airport as passengers were still boarding a British Airways-operated Boeing 777-300 headed for Lagos, Nigeria, on the BA75 trip.
A representative for British Airways claimed that the airline had apologised to customers after the flight was delayed so that a new jet could be located while the contaminated cabin was thoroughly cleaned, appearing to confirm the sickening incident.
After a leaked copy of what appears to be the aircraft maintenance record outlining what had occurred started to go viral on social media last week, rumours of the horrifying incident began to circulate.
The logbook reads: “During boarding, passenger stripped from (the) waist down and defecated on rear galley floor. He sat in it and rubbed it into galley floor and aisle carpets.”
But if that sounds bad enough, things quickly got even worse.
“He walked in it (his own excrement) and started running up aisle… He smeared his arms from hands to elbow in faecal matter and aggressively ran at other passengers, flicking faecal matter around and up door 4, over seats as he went”.
The logbook indicated that a deep clean was necessary because the curtains and carpets were “severely contaminated.”
While another plane was found to transport them to Lagos, the aircraft was pulled out of service, causing the passengers to be delayed for more than five hours. Flight Radar 24’s information indicates that the flight arrived slightly over five hours late.
In a short statement, the airline told The Sun: “We apologised to our customers for the delay to their flight and arranged for an alternative aircraft to allow them to continue their journey.”
