A United passenger got stuck in the worst seat on the plane.
On Flight 1554 from from Washington, D.C. to San Francisco Wednesday night, a woman was trapped in a bathroom with a jammed door, forcing the aircraft to make an unscheduled stop at Denver International Airport.
On the ground in Denver at 7 p.m., firefighters opened the inoperative door, freeing the woman “who was embarrassed, but otherwise unharmed,” according to CBS News.
Well folks it’s never a dull moment on @united , we have to make an “emergency landing” in Denver because a passenger got stuck in the bathroom. You can’t make this up…also the Wi-Fi is crappy and there is no way for me to charge my phone, happy travels. #unitedairlines pic.twitter.com/FHieakiO7Z

The flight departed Denver at 9:30 p.m. and arrived at SFO at about 11 p.m.
“We are reaching out to all customers onboard and the customer in the lavatory to apologize,” United Airlines said in a statement.
