Toilet Troubles Ground Plane of Plumbers

Nick B

If you ever found yourself surrounded by seven dozen plumbers you would at the very least feel comfortable that there wouldn’t be any plumbing problems, right?  Well unfortunately for the passengers of a Norwegian Air Shuttle flight earlier this year, that was not the case.  Soon after takeoff an issue with the toilets on the flight arose, forcing the pilot to turn around and return to the airport.  A non-story for any other flight, but this one happened to be transporting 84 plumbers on their way to a trade event.  Any one of them would have been happy to fix the toilets and keep the flight on schedule, but the issue needed to be addressed from the outside of the plane and as helpful as these guys were, none of them were going to head out there at 40,000 feet up.  Recognizing the irony and taking it in stride, the passengers found the typically annoying situation of a flight delay funny.  At the end of the day, they got to their destination three hours late, but with a good story to tell.
