While an airline shamed a couple last week for reportedly joining the “mile-high club” in the plane’s toilet, passengers on another flight at around the same time were subjected to far more offensive behaviour.
A passenger on the second flight is alleged to have urinated on fellow travellers.
In the mile-high club incident, a Norwegian Air Shuttle flight attendant used the aircraft’s public address system to wish a couple in one of the aircraft’s toilets together “best wishes of happy reproduction” during a two-hour flight from Paris to Stockholm.
A fellow passenger on flight DY4314 said the plane erupted in cheers and laughter when people learned what two of their fellow travellers may have been up to. The couple involved emerged embarrassed.
The Daily Mail reported the following statement from Norwegian Air Shuttle: “We can confirm there was an incident on board a recent flight from Paris to Stockholm involving two passengers.
“Whilst we appreciate that Paris is the city of love, we expect passengers to refrain from this type of behaviour on board.”
The “mile-high” incident is unlikely to have inconvenienced anyone. Unfortunately, that was not the case on a JetBlue flight from Anchorage to Portland, Oregon, when a plane passenger suddenly awoke, stood up, urinated on others and went back to sleep.
A 27-year-old man was arrested on Friday after JetBlue Flight 47 arrived at Portland International Airport, KOIN-TV reported.
About 30 minutes before landing, police said, the man is alleged to have stood up and started urinating through the gap between the seats in front of him – on to the horrified passengers sitting there.
The urinator then lost his balance and toppled backwards, splashing urine on passengers, seats and luggage, the Guardian reported.
A fellow traveller sitting nearby, who said she was not urinated on, said police officers had to wake the man when they boarded the plane, as he went straight back to sleep after the incident.
The suspect spent about five hours in jail before being bailed on charges of criminal mischief and offensive littering.
