‘You couldn’t make this s*** up’

Chaos has ensued on an easyJet plane after a passenger ‘defecated’ all over the aisle prompting the flight to be cancelled.

Footage has emerged on social media showing toilet paper strewn all over the floor of the plane which was scheduled to fly from Tenerife to Gatwick on Sunday night.

A video taken by a passenger captures the moment the pilot informs passengers that the flight is cancelled and has been rescheduled for the following morning.

Furious passengers took to social media to vent their anger about the flight being delayed before it was cancelled.

One wrote: “Real good of easyJet to delay the flight 3.5 hours with 0 communication then decide to cancel it altogether because someone took a s*** on the toilet floor.

“Quite literally couldn’t make this s* up.”

A spokesperson for eaasyJet said: “easyJet can confirm that flight EZY8054 from Tenerife to London Gatwick yesterday evening was delayed overnight due to the aircraft requiring additional cleaning.

“We did all possible to minimise the impact of the disruption for our customers, providing hotel accommodation and meals and the flight is due to depart this afternoon.

“The safety and wellbeing of our customers and crew is easyJet’s highest priority and while this was outside of our control, we would like to apologise to customers for the inconvenience caused.”

The news comes just weeks after another flight had to be grounded after a passenger had an “accident” on the plane prompting a biohazard.
