British Airways caught short on Cayman route

| 02/05/2010

(Daily Mail): Passengers on a British Airways flight from Heathrow to the Cayman Islands were told not to drink for two hours because none of the plane’s toilets were working. The 169 passengers and nine crew aboard the Boeing 767 to Grand Cayman via Nassau last Wednesday had been forced to share two toilets – including one in the exclusive Club World cabin – for most of the 12-hour flight after four others were closed owing to blockages.

One passenger who was travelling with his family, said: ‘Two-and-a-half hours away from Nassau the Club World toilet also became blocked, and the only working toilet on the flight was right next to us. Shortly afterwards this also blocked.’

    Had the flight crew not been informed that this was the maiden voyage of BA’s new P3 program (Pay a Pound to P)?  Simply inserting a credit card into the reader alongside the toilet would have opened the chutes.

      The fact is that CAL’s service is better than most airlines. They are safe and usually on time too. Don’t bash CAL!

        The music they play is atrocious.  It is a little thing.  But it drives me nuts.  It is why I always try to fly American.

    Not the first time this has happened.

    When I flew over for Lyndon’s trial last August we were delayed in Nassau because the aft toilets had backed up and there was a fear that when the aircraft took off the contents would overflow into the cabin.

    In the end the holding tanks were emptied and the Boeing 767 flew on to Cayman where it was hoped the local engineering support would deal with the problem.

    BA = Bloody Awful!
