Delta Removes Passenger Who Used Restroom Before Takeoff

9

A Delta Airlines passenger was allegedly removed from a Milwaukee-bound flight from Atlanta for using the restroom while the plane was taxiing to the runway in preparation for takeoff.

Kima Hamilton, the passenger who was removed, says he needed to use the restroom urgently while the plane was third in line for takeoff. After he was told that he was not able to do so, he used the restroom in the rear of the plane quickly and returned to his seat. As a result, the plane was forced to turn around, head back to the gate, and eject all of the passengers because Hamilton was deemed a security risk.

Hamilton tried to explain his decision to a flight attendant, who asked him to gather his belongings and exit the plane. The conversation was recorded on video by a couple sitting nearby.

“It was already understood and decided that I was a problem and I was getting kicked off the plane. When I exited, there were FBI agents waiting for me with Delta personnel,” he said. In a statement, Delta said “it is imperative that passengers comply with crew instructions during all phases of flight, especially at the critical points of takeoff and landing.” Read more at the MILWAUKEE JOURNAL-SENTINEL.

  1. Her komandant’s orders: verboten to uze zi bazroom. Who cares if you had to wait hours on the TSA “security” line and had to run to catch your plane, which takes more hours waiting on the runway – using bathroom is a privilege, not a right.

  2. I warned my kids not to Daven standing up in the aisle anymore, especially during take off. I told them that I don’t care what the rosh yeshhiva says. We have huge problem now.

  3. I vonce sed Kiddish Levuna ven de plain vas abut to take of. I dunno vy piple got so nervus ven I started to jomping ap and don. Dey runned avey frim me ven I sed “Shulem Alaichem”! Vats rung mit piple?

  4. If a terrorist wanted to prepare a bomb, he would go the bathroom and do it there. That is the reason for the prohibition. There should be some other alternative for people to relieve themselves semi privately without having to enter the bathroom.

    • So according to your logic, no one should be able to use airplane bathroom even after take off, nor use an airport bathroom, nor should anyone be able to bring any luggage or carry ons – how’s limiting bathroom time to after take off prevent a terrorist from exploding a bomb?!
