Passengers on a trip from Spain to London had a shocking mishap that left them stuck. On an easyJet aircraft from Tenerife, Spain, to London’s Gatwick Airport, the incident took place. After a man urinated on the plane’s floor, the authorities decided to cancel the trip. As there were faeces on the toilet floor of the aeroplane, the pilot announced that the flight would not take off. The pilot is heard saying in the viral video that they would spend the night since it would be really interesting to urinate in the front toilet. They would really deplane everyone and make plans for them to stay the night and fly the next day.

Mother Divine takes care of you in different forms. Today she came as Purvi, an @IndiGo6E crew member.
As I didn’t take snacks due to #Navratri fasting she returned with Sabudana Chips, Til Chikki & tea. When I asked how much to pay, she said- ‘No money sir. I am also fasting.’ pic.twitter.com/f4Av5oOZoF

An IndiGo flight attendant who learned that senior IPS officer Arun Bothra was keeping a fast during Navratri offered to provide vrat-friendly delicacies with him in return for the knowledge. The officer said in a post on the microblogging website X that he skipped the normal snacks on a recent Indigo flight since he was fasting for Navratri.
The IndiGo flight attendant offered the IPS officer a cup of tea and some munchies when she learned that he was fasting. Additionally, she declined to accept money for the refreshments and informed him that she was also observing a fast for Navratri instead. Along with sabudana chips, sesame seed chikki, and tea, the IndiGo crew member gave the officer a message that stated that it was a pleasure having him onboard with them. And may Durga Maa bless him!
