Who had the dodgy curry the night before?

Smelly toilet forces pilot to return to Heathrow
Quote
A town councillor from Hertfordshire says a British Airways flight to Dubai was forced to return to London due to a foul odour emanating from an overflowing toilet.
Hertsmere councillor Abhishek Sachdev, who represents Potters Bar Parkfield, said the seven-hour flight was aborted ‘because of a smelly poo in the toilet’.
Cabin crew were unable to fix the problem and the smell became unbearable for passengers seated nearby, forcing the plane to turn around near Brussels and land at Heathrow Airport.

I've sat the back and, occasionally, a not very nice odour eminates but rarely lingers for more than a minute or so.

"Eminates" I've always found them a very good airline but this was British Airways  Grin Grin

@Mav, that's one reason I never sit near the toilets. The airlines I use have my seat preferences in the computers and this generally keeps me safe Wink

Artmo, just go for seat A1 every time. It simplifies choice.  Wink

Depends on the type of aircraft and its configuration Wink

It wasn't through choice and was before the airline enabled online check-in.
