I was on the Delta Airlines diarrhoea plane and it was horrible – the vanilla disinfectant only made the smell worse as airline staff frantically tried to clean up the mess
- Passengers on the Delta diarrhoea plane have shared details of the experience
- A whole new carpet had to be put in, which was a five-hour cleaning operation

Last Friday, a Delta flight from Atlanta to Barcelona was forced to turn around after a passenger on board suffered a bout of diarrhoea which ‘ran all the way through the plane’.
The aircraft touched down in Atlanta at 10:40pm and eventually resumed its journey to Spain just over five hours later at 3am.
People who were on the now famous flight have taken to social media to share details of the horrific journey.
One woman, who goes by Dee W on X, shared that her partner was on the flight.
Replying to a thread about the incident, she 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***.

One passenger praised the crew and cleanup staff with how they dealt with the situation
‘After the plane landed, it was thoroughly cleaned. They didn’t leave until around 2:30am.’
However, she clarified that the plane was squeaky clean when the passengers boarded the plane again in the early hours of morning.
She added ‘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 who was on the Airbus A350 aircraft to Barcelona with his wife, said it was a ‘mess’ and that a whole new carpet had to be put in, which ended up being a five-hour cleaning operation.
The X user, John Hurdt, wrote ‘Both my wife and I were on the flight. It was a mess.
‘The pilots made the right decision to turn around. The ground crew ripped out the carpet and put new in.’
He also praised 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.’
