US Airways flight makes emergency landing after dog poops in the aisle twice
UPI ^ | 5-30-14 | Evan Bleier

KANSAS CITY, Miss., May 30 (UPI) --A US Airways flight from Los Angeles to Philadelphia was forced to make an emergency landing in Kansas City after a service dog started pooping in the aisle and the flight crew was unable to contain the mess.

The passengers aboard US Airways Flight 598 could only sit back and watch while a big dog defecated in the aisle not once, but twice.

After the dog went to the bathroom for the first time about an hour into the flight, the crew did their best to deal with the mess but they were unable to contain the smell.

"An hour later, it still smelled bad, and after they cleaned it all up, it pooped again," Passenger Steve McCall told INSIDE EDITION. "A couple of people started dry-heaving, a couple of people were throwing up."

Tough break with the smell, but I’m almost sure I would have rather held my nose and toughed it out than waited through the emergency landing etcetera.

They couldn’t pick it up with paper towels and put it down the toilet? Or put it into a plastic bag and seal it? Good grief, it’s not that difficult.

Doggy DEPENDS. Work every time.

On a flight from Ban Methuot to Saigon in an old DC 4, one of my interpreters brought along a dog he had bought for his children.

Needless to say the dog barked and stank up most of the cargo hold. However, the ARVN general and his wife we able to sit up near the cockpit where there was little smell.

RANK has its privileges when it comes to a RANK dog.

Singing “Saigon from a DC4” (look up the Flatlanders song of similar title)

I’ve picked up some pretty soft poops from time to time. You’ve just got to grit your teeth and do it.

Use what comes to hand. A spatula and a plastic bag, for instance, sponges and paper towels. They could afford to throw the spatula out if they didn’t want to clean it—a lot cheaper than making an unscheduled landing.

Reminds me of that old Gary Larson “Farside” cartoon where the dog teacher directs the dog students’ attention to the blackboard where it states “the world is your toilet”.

Slightly off topic,but when my son was in training at Parris Island many years ago I sent him a bunch of Gary Larson’s “Farside” books.

He said they made him the most popular guy in the barracks.

I once snagged a frequent flier first class upgrade on TWA from St. Louis to San Fran. Just before KC, the first class toilet overflowed and the lovely green/blue water flowed all over the first class cabin, finding its way to every corner of the cabin. The stench was awful. Made an emergency landing about 10 PM in KC and waited about 3 hours for another aircraft.

Not ONE DIME of compensation from TWA. Don’t even think I got an apology letter.

It would be if it was all mushy and got into the rug. OTOH I get sick and tired of these “Comfort” animals. One AA flight had a pig wandering up and down the aisle. What makes these people think their “comfort animal” is any cleaner than my dog? They take them into restaurants and food stores.

First off, he’s not a dam dog, he’s a SERVICE Dog dip$hit.

Second the dumba$$ Flight Crew needed to DEAL with the situation NOT cause a dam scene.

For blind people? Who knows. These days you can get a service dog for depression.

A service dog can be anything - seeing eye, whatever. It should not be running around messing up the plane.
