PASSENGERS on a United Airlines flight were left busting after the airline forgot to pack toilet paper for the ten hour long flight.
United Airlines admitted to the blunder after it was exposed on the web forum FlyerTalk. They quickly issued a statement apologising for the colossal mistake.

"We apologise to our customers on this flight for the inconvenience and would like the opportunity to welcome them back."

A photo posted on FlyerTalk shows dozens of serviettes stuffed into vomit bags with the words "toilet paper" written across the bags in black pen.

To make matters worse the napkins were emblazoned with the words "fly by the tips of your fingers".

According to The Sun, crew noticed the Boeing 777 travelling from San Francisco to London had exhausted its supply of loo paper as they prepared to takeoff - but there wasn't enough time to restock.

This photo posted on FlyerTalk has caused great embarrassment for United Airlines. The airline has said sorry for forgetting to pack the loo paper.

What's the big fuss?
I'd rather clean my ass with a wet-nap than the fine grit sandpaper airlines try to pass-off as toilet paper.

I always shit before a flight so I don't have to sit in those cramped little crappers.

Suddenly that vindaloo the night before wasn't such a good idea.

They burn, as do some hand sanitizers.

I carry tissues and baby wipes, but, when I downsize to a fanny pack, I sometimes don't have the wipes. Sometimes, we're both out of paper though.

Rather than stink, I used one of the hand sanitizers and it burnt, even though it was the alcohol free Gold Bond Moisturizing one I like.
