take this one and chew on it for a while... Had this happened on a flight from LAX to SFO, it wouldn't been a big deal, 45 minute flight, but LHR-SFO?



"We've heard of flights running out of sugar, snacks and even fuel - but never have we ever known a flight to run out of toilet paper. That's what happened on board a recent flight from London to San Francisco, when United Airlines allegedly forgot to re-stock the plane's supply of toilet paper.

According to an account posted to FlyerTalk.com, it seems some creative flight attendants put together a pocket to hold some cocktail napkins, so passengers who had to use the loo weren't left completely stranded in the bathroom."

Mistakes are going to happen. The flight attendants worked out a solution that while not perfect, gets the job done. It's not like anyone was told they could not use the lav.

Well otherwise a diversion was in order, it happens quite often when too many toilets become inoperative.

Ah come on, it's a funny story. I've never heard of it happening in all of my travels, so I enjoyed the post.

The more YouTube videos glamorize this type of ''prank'', ''trick'':

The more common ''running out'' is going to become...

I've had my laugh so I'll freely admit, the first thing that shot through my mind, while imagining everyone having the runs:

''Elaine: 'We had a choice of steak or fish. Dr Rumack: Yes, yes, I remember, I had the lasagna.''



I believe in coincidences. Coincidences happen every day. But I don't trust coincidences.
