A Wizz Air passenger squatted down and urinated on the floor after she was allegedly told she could not use the toilet while the aircraft was being re-fuelled.
Shocking footage shows the woman squatting against a wall while speaking with someone on the phone. She is surrounded by several paper towels and a large pool of urine.
The incident took place on board a Wizz Air flight from London Luton to Polish capital Warsaw just before take off.
According to reports, the plane was fuelling up and passengers were not allowed to go to the bathroom during the procedure.
Because of this, the woman claims she was forced to relieve herself in the galley where the food is usually prepared. In the video, the woman can be seen with her knickers and leggings pulled down to her knees, telling someone on the phone: ‘You have to help me before the flight takes off.
I am peeing in the aircraft. ‘I asked them (cabin crew) if I could use the toilet, but they said I could not right now. So I am peeing in the galley. Right in front of them.’

Unconcerned, the woman continues: ‘The police are coming because it is my fault. All my fault.’ A young British couple then interrupt the woman, saying to her: ‘Are you being serious? That is disgusting! You are a grown woman!’
The woman replies: ‘Yeh, I know. I did ask.’ The man then adds: ‘So you think it is okay to piss on the floor?’ There have been no further updates on what happened to the woman after the police arrived.

The footage sparked outrage after it was shared on a ‘Passenger Shaming’ Facebook page yesterday. One person wrote: ‘To top things off, she thought she’d have a casual phone conversation while peeing on the floor? Oh. My. Gosh!’
Another person commented: ‘Be a grown up and hold it until you reach the terminal! Not sure why they denied her the lav though.’ Wizz Air is a Hungarian low-cost airline that serves many cities across Europe as well as some destinations in North Africa and the Middle East.
A spokesperson for the airline told Metro.co.uk: ‘On Wizz Air flight W6 1309 from Warsaw to London Luton a passenger was reported to become unruly during landing, ignoring crew instructions.
‘The cabin crew handled the situation as they are trained to do and reported the passenger’s behaviour to the respective authorities. After disembarkation, while waiting for the authorities’ arrival, the situation escalated. ‘The aircraft was refuelling and therefore the lavatories could not be used, as is standard procedure.
‘As a result, the passenger’s behaviour became aggressive and offensive towards the crew. Safety is our top priority and the airline has zero tolerance for abusive behaviour. This is now a matter for the police.’
