Bravo TV host Andy Cohen was among a group of passengers left stranded in New York City this week after their Delta Air Lines flight to Nice, France was forced to turn around over the Atlantic Ocean because of a broken toilet.
According to The Daily Mail, the Tuesday night flight had been in the air for roughly three and a half hours before it turned back, arriving back at JFK Airport 20 minutes later than it would have touched down in Nice.
In total, the flight to nowhere lasted well over seven hours.
Cohen, who was traveling for vacation with his friend, documented the drama on his Instagram story. “How’s this? We were two hours outside of Europe, somebody pooped or put something down the toilet that it didn’t go and broke the toilets. We had to turn around to fix the f—— toilet,” he said via People.
“To the person on the Delta flight to Nice that put a foreign object down the toilet…tell me who you are because we’re going to find you…I think they should sacrifice themselves at the beginning of the flight,” Cohen joked.
Cohen and the other passengers were put on another flight the following day and eventually reached their destination in the French Riviera.
Delta wouldn’t provide details about the incident, only confirming that the “lavatories were inoperative.”
“Delta apologizes to our customers for the inconvenience after Delta flight 412 to Nice, France returned to John F. Kennedy International Airport after the crew received an indication that the lavatories were inoperative,” the airline said in a statement.
“The flight landed without incident and the aircraft proceeded to the gate for maintenance inspection. Customers have been re-accommodated on an alternate flight and were offered a gesture of service recovery for the disruption to their travel.”
The Daily Mail reported the decision was made to turn around because Delta had more maintenance staff available in the U.S. compared to France.
