Thought sitting in the middle seat was rough? A SpiceJet passenger had the crappiest flying experience ever after getting trapped in the lavatory for nearly the entire flight.

“A passenger unfortunately got stuck inside the lavatory for about an hour,” the budget airline said in a statement addressing the involuntary downgrade.

The unnamed flyer reportedly went to use the lavatory shortly after takeoff on a one-hour-and-45-minute night flight from Mumbai to Bengaluru Tuesday, Indian Express reported.

However, when he tried to leave after doing his business, the door wouldn’t open due to a lock malfunction, effectively trapping the passenger inside the bathroom, per the statement.

The crew and other passengers desperately attempted to free the flyer from outhouse arrest, but to no avail. As a result, he was relegated to the great honey bucket in the sky for nearly the entire flight.

The note crewmembers slid under the door to try and calm the impromptu prisoner.

In an attempt to calm the passenger during his inflight en-crap-ment, crewmembers slid a note under the door a la FBI negotiators trying to reassure a hostage.

“Sir we tried our best to open the door, however, we could not,” the letter read. “Do not panic. We are landing in a few minutes, so please close the commode lid and sit on it and secure yourself. As soon as the main door is open, an engineer will come.”

His solitary can-finement finally ended upon landing. Two engineers boarded the aircraft and broke open the door, rescuing the commode captive from outhouse arrest, after which he received “immediate medical support.”

The airline has since issued the flyer a full reimbursement for his poopy imprisonment.

“SpiceJet regrets and apologizes for the inconvenience caused to the passenger,” they said. “The passenger is being provided a full refund.”
