We were on diarrhoea flight from hell – vanilla cleaner made the smell even worse…they had to rip up the whole carpet | The Sun

A PASSENGER on the diarrhoea flight from hell revealed the vanilla disinfectant made the smell even worse before staff were forced to rip up the whole carpet.

The plane was forced to make an emergency landing on September 2 after the passenger's explosive mess was deemed a biohazard.

The long-haul Delta Airlines flight from Atlanta, US, to Barcelona, Spain, was just two hours in when the plane made a U-turn due to the "medical issue" on board.

Speaking to air traffic control, the captain said: "This is a biohazard issue.

"We’ve had a passenger who’s had diarrhea all the way through the airplane, so they want us to come back to Atlanta."

One unfortunate passenger who was onboard the nightmare flight with her partner told of their experience on X, formerly known as Twitter.

The social media user, known only as Dee W, wrote: "My partner was on that flight! It was pretty bad.

"It was dribbled down the aisle, smelled horrible.

"The vanilla-scented disinfectant used on it only made it smell like vanilla s***," she added.

The horrified traveller revealed that after the plane had landed it was thoroughly cleaned but they didn't manage to leave until around 2:30am.

X users were left sickened by her account of the incident and flooded her post with questions.

She then explained: "The flight was met by emergency vehicles and EMTs carried the sick passenger off the plane.

"My partner said the plane was cleaner when they got back on at 2am than it was the first time they got on. No smell either."

Another passenger on the horror flight also said the entire scenario was a "mess" that led to the aisle carpet having to be completely ripped up.

He revealed the clean-up took around five hours in total and a new carpet had to be installed in place of the soiled one.

"The pilots made the right decision to turn around. The ground crew ripped out the carpet and put new [one] in," he said.

He also commended the staff involved that dealt with the chaos, adding "Considering the circumstances, the ground crew did a great job, along the attendants and the pilots."

Horror footage has circulated on X which shows the vile mess spread throughout the Airbus A350 – which fully loaded can carry 330 people.

A number of paper towels appeared to have been hastily put on the floor in a bid to clear up the muck as flight attendants attempted to scrub the mess before the plane landed.

Passengers whose flight was ruined were transferred from the aircraft to another jet and made it to Spain eight hours later than scheduled, Flightradar24 data shows.

A spokesperson for the airline told Insider: "Delta flight 194 from Atlanta to Barcelona returned to Atlanta following an onboard medical issue.

"Our teams worked as quickly and safely as possible to thoroughly clean the aeroplane and get our customers to their final destination.

"We sincerely apologise to our customers for the delay and inconvenience to their travel plans."
