"All toilets were full and passengers needed to 'go really bad, '" read a report from Delta.

A Delta Air Lines flight from New York City to Seattle was diverted to Montana because the plane's toilets had problems and passengers needed to go, officials said Wednesday.

A Delta flight from JFK Airport to Seattle needed to make an unscheduled landing to give passengers a much-needed bathroom break.

The Boeing 757 had to divert roughly 200 miles after its toilets stopped working and passengers basically couldn't hold it the rest of the way. Because a gate wasn't available, the airplane taxied to a cargo area, where a stairway was rolled to the airplane so passengers could "disembark to find relief of built-up pressures", the Aviation Herald reported. Instead, they decided to make a sharp left turn and head hundreds of miles south to Billings Logan International Airport.

A rolling staircase was used to allow fliers in need to deplane quickly and "find relief of built-up pressures", per the Delta report. In the meantime, plane's toilets were also serviced and the plane was refuelled so that it could take off again.

Flights do get diverted to Billings Logan International Airport occasionally, but not normally to answer the call of nature.

The news report quoted Kevin Ploehn, the Billings director of aviation and transit who said that ground crews escorted the passengers safely to the terminal toilets.
