    When you really gotta go, the plane’s gotta land.

    A Delta Airlines flight from Kennedy Airport had to make an
    emergency pit stop in Montana so passengers could take a much-
    needed bathroom break, officials said Wednesday.

    Malfunctioning bathrooms on the Boeing 757 caused a real
    emergency Saturday — forcing the plane to land at Billings Logan
    International Airport more than halfway through the six-hour
    flight to Seattle.

    “All toilets were full and passengers needed to ‘go really
    bad,’” according to a Delta incident report uncovered by the
    Billings Gazette.

    Once they landed relief was still nowhere in sight — because of
    the unscheduled stop, no gates were available for the plane,
    which had to be taken to a cargo area to unload several
    “passengers that needed to find a lavatory very urgently,”
    according to the report.

    Ground crews had to bring a rolling stairway to the plane so
    passengers could rush to the nearest restroom and “find relief
    of built-up pressures,” the report said.

    Passengers were allowed to get back on the plane and continue on
    their way once the toilets were fixed and the plane was
    refueled, Kevin Ploehn, the Billings director of aviation and
    transit, told the paper.
