British Airways passenger finds dried vomit on his seat.

It was nothing short of a disgusting trip for a passenger travelling on a British Airways flight after he found that his seat was covered in what appeared to be vomit.

Dave Gildea had upgraded to business class while travelling from London to Seattle and was horrified to find his seat dirty. While speaking to Sun Online Travel about his experience, Dave said that the walls behind his seat as well as the floor were equally dirty.

“I didn’t notice anything until about two hours into the British Airways flight when I popped down the foot stool so I could get some sleep and saw the vomit on the seat. It was also splashed on the wall behind and the floor below, which I then noticed,” Dave told Sun Online Travel.

Soon after, Dave intimated the cabin crew but the attendant refused to cooperate following which he asked for a blanket so as to cover his seat. Moreover, Dave was also asked whether he fell sick while on the seat during the flight.

“I went to the cabin crew and the attendant’s first response was ‘Was this here when you boarded?’ but it was clear it was dried in. He didn’t offer a seat change or an apology, so I asked for a blanket to cover it up so I could put my feet down. Of course as I slept, I moved around on the blanket so I woke up with dried vomit on my feet. It was pretty disgusting. With the price I paid for the ticket, I was shocked,” Dave added.

Dave also wrote about the incident at length on Twitter and shared a picture of the seat.

His followers on Twitter are thoroughly disgusted and expressed their displeasure on the comments section.

A spokesperson of British Airways later apologised and told Sun Online Travel,

“We pride ourselves on delivering a high standard of service and an enjoyable experience on board our flights, and we are sorry that on this occasion this fell short of our customers’ expectations,” the spokesperson was quoted as saying by the website.
