United Passenger Claims He Was Forced To Sit In Vomit-Covered Seat
A passenger on a United Airlines flight says he and his family were forced to sit on a seat that was covered in vomit.
Sam Trail reveals that when he and his wife got on United Flight 2057 from Vancouver to Houston, he discovered that the seat in front of him and the back of his own seat was covered in puke.
“The seat in front of me was covered with vomit,” He told Click2Houston.com. “They kept boarding the people and so we couldn’t move. We basically had our luggage in our laps trying to avoid contact with the vomit.”
“I was told, ‘Oh, yeah, we can get a cleaning crew, but you’re going to be the reason this flight is delayed.”
He reveals that the flight attendant gave him a towel to clean up the puke before a cleaner came on board the plane with a spray bottle and towel. However, he says there was still residue left after the alleged cleanup.
United Airlines claims that he was not told to clean up the vomit and they released a statement saying,
“We’re disappointed that this aircraft did not meet our standards for cleanliness. Once the issue was brought to our crew’s attention, cabin cleaners were called on board to clean the seat prior to departure. We have reached out to our customer to better understand what happened.”
