Air Canada Removes Passengers from Flight for Refusing Vomit-Covered Seats

LAHORE MIRROR – Two passengers were removed from an Air Canada flight after they declined to occupy seats that had been soiled by vomit, as reported by both an eyewitness and local media.

Susan Benson, seated in the row behind the passengers on the August 26 flight from Las Vegas to Montreal, detailed the incident in a Facebook post. She wrote that two women and a man were having difficulty getting seated due to a “foul smell.”

Susan Benson overheard the situation involving the two women, whom she mentioned were married. According to Benson, flight attendants and pilots informed the women that someone had vomited in that area on a prior flight, and the residue had remained on the seat overnight.

Benson recalled that the crew had attempted a hasty cleanup before boarding the passengers, but they couldn’t thoroughly clean the affected area.

She noted the presence of vomit residue and a strong, unpleasant odor that was pungent enough for her to notice.

In an attempt to mask the smell, the cabin crew had placed coffee grounds in the seat pouch and sprayed perfume, but the “clearly upset” passengers brought to the attention of a flight attendant that both the seat and seat belt were still wet.

The flight attendant repeatedly informed them that there was nothing that could be done due to the full flight. After several minutes of argument, the passengers were eventually provided with blankets and wipes, as Benson described. They made an attempt to clean the area themselves, but the seats remained wet.

Benson pointed out that the women expressed their reluctance to sit on wet seats for the entirety of the 4-hour-and-25-minute flight.

However, as they settled into their seats, the pilot approached the women and informed them that they had been discourteous to the flight attendant.

He stated that they had two options: either leave the plane voluntarily, arranging and paying for their own new flights, or be escorted off the plane by security and potentially placed on a no-fly list.

Benson stressed that there was no shouting involved, and the incident was barely audible to those who were not in close proximity to the individuals involved.

Additionally, a male passenger in the same row, who identified himself as a police officer, assisted in interpreting the flight crew’s instructions to the women, as they did not speak the language.
