  • Passengers aboard a US Airways flight from LA to Philadelphia were shocked when the large dog relieved itself in the aisle
  • After it was cleaned up - causing the staff to run out of toilet paper - the dog went again, passengers said
  • The plane was forced to land in Kansas City, Missouri so crews could clean up before the plane took off again and completed the journey
  • Owner was apologetic and told everyone she wanted to give them gifts

A US Airways flight was forced to make an emergency landing after a dog relieved itself at least twice in the plane's aisle - causing travelers to become sick when they were overwhelmed by the stench.

Flight 598 took off from Los Angeles for Philadelphia on Wednesday - and it seems that the pet, a service dog reportedly named Truffles, couldn't quite wait to reach their destination.

'The full sized dog that's on my flight, well it did what dogs do & went to the bathroom when it felt like it,' one passenger, Chris law, tweeted. 'Smack dab in middle of aisle.' 

Another passenger, Steve McCall, told Inside Edition:'About an hour into the flight, I started smelling this terrible smell. I thought it was the family in front of me - I have a little eight-month-old and I was like, "That is the worst blowout I have ever smelled".

'I look up the aisle way and there's a dog pooping right in the middle of the aisle. It's a big dog, three or four feet tall or long, and he was just going."  

He added: ''It wasn't little pieces, it was fully-fledged dog-diarrhea.'

Staff desperately tried to clean up the mess, using paper towels, disinfectant and then laying towels on top so that passengers could get by.

But just as the mess was cleaned up, the dog had to go again, passengers said.  

'The second time after the dog pooped they ran out of paper towels, they didn't have anything else,' McCall said. 'The pilot comes on the radio, "Hey, we have a situation in the back, we're going to have to emergency land".'

The stink was so bad that passengers nearby started 'dry heaving' and vomiting and the plane was forced to divert to Kansas City, Missouri, where a cleaning crew cleaned up the mess, McCall said.

The plane then took off again and finally arrived in its destination, but some passengers missed their flight connections. One family missed their cruise to Greece, McCall said.

His fellow passenger, Chris Law, snapped images of the dog and updated followers throughout the ordeal on his Twitter page.

'Can't make this up,' he wrote. 'The dog has now s*** twice. Plane is emergency landing cuz ppl are getting sick. Hazmat team needs to board @USAirways.' 

The company later responded to him on Twitter, saying: 'Our apologies for your discomfort, Chris.'

There were also apologies from the dog's owner, McCall said.

'She said,"Hey, so sorry, I want to get all your addresses so I can give you a Starbucks gift card".' he told Inside Edition, adding: 'This is the most unique flight experience I've ever had.'

MailOnline has contacted US Airways for comment. US Airways told Inside Edition that the animal was a service dog.

    Maybe it's just me. I thought service dogs were supposed to be able to hold it and go when the timing is right?

    Maybe this is just a pet dog that the owner uses a service dog in order to be able to have the dog fly with the owner. I hear that is being done a lot lately.
