Toilet Trouble: Boeing 787 Forced to Land for Crappy Problem

Toilet malfunction possibly caused by an electronic glitch


A toilet incident forced Japan Airlines to turn around one of its airplanes during a flight from Moscow to Tokyo.

Chicago Tribune reports that the airline’s Boeing (BA) 787 Dreamliner had a toilet malfunction that was probably caused as the result of an electronic glitch, according to a JAL spokesperson. The flight was carrying 141 passengers and it was well on its way to Tokyo Wednesday night before returning to Moscow. The Boeing plane turned back after five hours and it was taken in for repairs by airline workers.

This incident comes only a couple of days after Boeing announced that the government shutdown is blocking the company from delivering some of its planes to airlines. As of Thursday afternoon, Boeing shares are up about 2.79%.
