f you're looking for yet another reason to avoid flying anywhere, especially if you have a bladder the size of a Cheerio, this story is for you.
Because on the same day a Kentucky doctor was dragged off a United Airlines flight a month ago, another passenger was having her own humiliating experience.
Kansas City mom of two Nicole Harper has an overactive bladder.
She says she was on a United flight, heading home from Houston with her family when she suddenly had to use the restroom.
This story is pretty unbelievable, so I'll let you read what she posted on Facebook:
United says that the incident occurred "on descent" when passengers are required to "remain seated with the seat belt fastened per FAA regulations."
They also insist that Harper was never told by flight attendants to “use cups instead of the lavatory,” so it’s a bit difficult to decide what actually went down, other than the reputation of United Airlines even more.
The airline did, however, issue a statement.
It reads, “Customer safety is always our first priority. Initial reports from the Mesa Airlines flight attendants indicate that Ms. Harper attempted to visit the lavatory on descent and was instructed to remain seated with the seat belt fastened per FAA regulations. At no point during the flight did flight attendants suggest that Ms. Harper use cups instead of the lavatory. We have reached out to Ms. Harper to better understand what occurred.”
I think I’ll just stay at home.
