AA 180 PEK-LAX 3/30/18
This is not a question, but I just flew on AA180 PEK-LAX and there was a medical onboard which left the economy section scattered with vomit, bodily fluids and fecal matter all over the seats and floor. The plane returned to PEK and the sick passenger was taken off, however no cleaning crew ever came onboard. Nothing was sanitized, nobody came to check the area. The seats and floor were simply covered with blankets and the captain proceeded to fly us to LAX. Is this not a biohazard to leave excrements and vomit out in the open for 17 hours? It was the most disgusting scene I’ve ever seen and I cannot believe AA would let a plane like this fly!
It certainly is a biohazard. One of the unintended consequences of airline high cost change fees is that more sick people are taking flights when perhaps, if the change fee was a bit more forgiving, they’d rebook and fly later when healthy. I’ve seen some real disgusting messes in lavatories where the crew locked the door and closed it off. In this case, the cabin should have been cleaned up upon return to PEK. No excuse for that and I would certainly complain.
