Man Sits In Urine On 11-Hour British Airways Flight
Let me begin this post by saying, “I wish TF I would!!!”
39-year-old Andrew Wilkinson of London boarded a British Airways flight in Heathrow to visit his parents in Cape Town, Africa.
After boarding the plane, he noticed a wet spot in his seat and immediately brought it to the attention of a stewardess.
It was about the size of two decks of cards laid side by side. At first I thought it was water, but the smell was so distinct it could only have been urine.
The stewardess brought homie some wipes and told him to clean it up.
Wilkinson asked to be moved to another seat.
I said to the stewardess, ‘You are obviously going to move me into business, aren’t you? I can’t really sit here,’
She said she would see what she would do, but I wasn’t moved and then she commented: ‘You are going to work me hard on this flight, aren’t you?’
Long story short, they never gave him another seat.
So I was left to sit in a urine-soaked seat for over 11 hours when I paid £1,242 [about 1,600] for a return flight with BA.
It was awful. By the end of the flight, I could feel it seeping into my jeans.
Andrew said he got through the flight by placing a blanket over the seat, but it still wasn’t good enough.
Wilkinson said he was offered 5,000 “Avios points” — which allow him to book reward flights.
“I just do not think that is a good enough compensation for sitting in someone else’s wee for over 11 hours,” he said.
British Airways released the following statement:
We were very concerned to hear about this and have been in touch with our customer to apologize and make amends.
The cleanliness of our aircraft is of the utmost importance to us and our planes are cleaned thoroughly after every flight.
We also perform frequent spot checks to make sure our cleaners are maintaining our high standards.
Man please! I would have gotten off of that flight as soon as that piss hit my nostrils!
