Airplane bathrooms are never a pleasant experience, passengers on an American Airlines flight from Phoenix to Hawaii had an even worse one-- they were told to pee in a bag. The restrooms on the airplane seemed to be close to overflowing and a flight attendant offered this suggestion to one traveler, who didn't seem to into the idea.
The airline confirmed that the left the airport with working bathrooms, and couldn't stop at a nearby airport to fix the situation since the flight was over the ocean, so this was the onboard solution. It was later found that a diaper had been flushed, causing the blockage.
The airline did offer the passenger compensation, $240 in vouchers and 17,500 miles.
