'Bring on the bathroom humor': United passenger got stuck in the bathroom mid-flight

“Visiting the bathroom mid-flight is hardly a pleasant experience – but getting stuck in there is a whole other kind of ordeal.

A United Airlines passenger found out the hard way on a flight to San Francisco on Wednesday.

"Flight 1554 from Washington, D.C., to San Francisco diverted to Denver to assist a customer who was in the lavatory when the lavatory door became inoperative," United spokeswoman Andrea Hiller confirmed to USA TODAY. "The passenger was safely removed from the lavatory after landing, and customers have since continued on to their destination on a new aircraft....”

Given how small the standard coach seat is these days, that doesn't sound like a half bad way to spend a flight. Just pass a magazine or two under the door to me, please! :D

I must say, Kurt, the same thing occurred to me.
