A woman on an Air Canada flight last month was made to sit in her own urine for 7 hours.
The 26-year-old woman was flying back to Dublin from Bogota in Columbia. According to reports, the flight was delayed for two hours. The woman said, while the flight was still on the ground she asked the cabin crew multiple times, if she could use the lavatory. But they denied her request.
In an interview to Dublin Live, she said, “I asked four times over a two-hour period if I could use the toilet and told a cabin crew member that it was an emergency and I was going to have an accident if they didn’t let me use the toilet.”
She added, “I was aggressively told to go to my seat and denied access to the bathroom, eventually I had an accident. On one of the many occasions when I asked to use the bathroom, I got out of my seat while the aircraft was still stationary and walked towards the toilet.”
She continued, “I was aggressively told by who I assume was the head crew member to get back in my seat. I explained I had asked on several occasions to use the toilet and feared I was going to have an accident that I had already waited as long as I could but the plane wasn’t taking off or taxing.”
She was then forced to sit on her seat in her urine for the entire flight that lasted for seven hours. As she landed in Toronto, she had to book a room to take a shower and change. She said, “I was completely humiliated and visibly upset the cabin crew ignored me for the rest of the flight.”
The woman added, “When I was leaving the plane I looked for the different crew members who I had asked to use the toilet to let them know how disgusted I was at how they treated me but they had cowardly hid at the back of the plane.”
