I've had some crappy (no pun intended) flights in my time (click the flying link below) but never as bad as this one. Passengers on an 8 hour flight had to put up with human waste flowing out of the toilets and down the aisle. The airline involved, Continental, is looking at a large lawsuit following the way in which they dealt or failed to deal with it. A good passengers account here, and a blog set up by passengers here, news story here.
Oh and Brian, get down to the Shannon Airport, find those female employees and give em a clip behind the ear for me will ya. Thanks.
