Toilet Paper Dust Diverts Vegas-Bound Flight

‘Toilet paper dust caused a Southwest Airlines flight to make an unexpected landing in New Orleans on Friday. According to spokeswoman Mary Lee, a passenger noticed the white substance in the bathroom of a flight from Tampa to Las Vegas.

The pilot thought the threat was enough to land the plane as soon as possible; New Orleans’ Armstrong International Airport happened to be closest.

All passengers were taken off the plane, and inspectors determined that the substance was just dust from toilet paper. ‘
