Regrettably this behaviour isn't uncommon. I've seen pax piss in the galley and/or on an exit door. Simply vile behaviour.

Re: Daytime west coast - Europe transatlantic flights.

A few years ago TS operated a daytime YVR-LGW with the return sector leaving LGW in the evening. I don't know if they still do it seasonally, or if it has reverted back to the usual overnight eastbound.
