Now this is a sh--ty flight!
Try to imagine sitting in a plane with overflowing sewage running down the aisle for 7 HOURS! Well, that's exactly what happened to these people.
Passengers on a Continental Airlines flight had to hold their noses for hours as sewage overflowed from toilets while they were high over the Atlantic.
That's after lavatories - in the middle of a flight filled with passengers - started spewing sewage.
It turns out that there was only 1/2 a working bathroom on the whole plane ... with over 200 passengers.
The plane had also made a pit stop in Ireland the day before because there was a problem with the toilets. The problem was supposed to have been fixed, and the plane took off the next day with the same passengers.
Flight attendants still served meals. Though they told passengers to not eat or drink much, and they looked like this while they were doing it.
To add insult to injury ... Continental refused to refund the passenger's money. Instead, they gave a $500 voucher for a future flight on THEIR airline. I smell a lawsuit a comin. After that I bet Continental will wish they would have refunded the money to the passengers.
Here's a couple more picks:
Make sure you check out the video at the link above.
Continental has finally apologized after being exposed in the media. What took you so long? Oh, right ... you wanted to sweep this under the rug.
Continental has also said that they are compensating the passengers of the flight, but declined to say how or how much. A voucher for a future flight is NOT compensation! These passengers paid for a service that they did not receive, and Continental had better step up before they are looking at further bankruptcy.
