Passengers on a transatlantic flight were left furious when the plane ran out of toilet tissue during the journey. The 11-hour United Airlines flight from San Francisco to London got into difficulty when the supply of cleansing material in one of its toilets came to an unexpected end.
In order to combat this dire situation, United cabin crew improvised by providing napkins in the cubicle for passengers to use. The airline’s napkins carry the words: 'Fly by the tips of your fingers.' One disgruntled passenger snapped a pic of the napkins and it has since gone viral. Whether the napkins served as a sufficiently robust solution to the problem remains a mystery.
United Airlines, who were ranked last in a recent customer service survey, have since apologised to their passengers for this unsavoury incident.
