Kolkata to Mumbai SpiceJet flight had seat belt sign on for 3 hours. Flyers asked to not use loo

New Delhi: Passengers on a three-hour-long Kolkata-Mumbai flight were barred from using washrooms recently for a long stretch, leaving them in a desperate situation.

The bizarre incident happened on a SpiceJet aircraft, which was flying from Kolkata in West Bengal to Mumbai in Maharashtra, after the flight attendants refused to let the flyers use the washrooms.

According to the Times of India, the reason why the attendants on flight SG 6422 refused their flyers to use toilets was because the seat belt sign was on almost throughout the journey.

Reportedly, the seat belt sign was switched off only for a brief period of time after take-off. The flight took off at 11.55am, after which the seat belt sign was switched off for about 30-35 minutes. But then it was switched on again as the plane experienced turbulence.

This happened before the crew began their service onboard.

"There were intermittent periods of turbulence but there were also lengthy periods of relative calm. We had expected the sign to be switched off but it wasn’t," a passenger told the daily.
