A woman was caught urinating on the floor of an airplane after complaining that staff had prevented her from using the bathroom for two hours.
A video posted online shows an unidentified woman squatting in the corner of what appears to be a Spirit Airlines plane urinating as a flight attendant, dressed in a black and yellow Spirit Airlines uniform, films her.
The woman yells at the flight attendant, saying that she has needed to urinate for two hours, but was told she couldn’t and the bathroom doors were locked.
The incident comes amid a rush of unruly passengers aboard planes in the wake of the COVID pandemic.

It appears the incident occurred aboard a Spirit Airlines flight, with a flight attendant wearing the black and yellow uniform.
In the short video posted online Thursday, the woman claims she was denied access to a bathroom on board a flight.
“I need to pee for two hours, you tell me you can’t, you close the doors,” she tells the stewardess who is filming her.
The flight attendant filming her says that she should “say hi to the camera for me,” to which the woman says that the flight attendant should “blame herself.”
‘Your plane is stopped, I said I can’t hold the urine.
“You can do whatever you want,” he tells the flight attendant. ‘You can send a warrant, arresting me is better than this.’
Meanwhile, the flight attendant tells him that he should drink some water “because your urine smells disgusting.”
At the end of the 20-second video, the female passenger stands up and pulls up her pants before starting to walk away.
DailyMail.com has contacted Spirit Airlines for comment.
The woman claims in the video that she was denied access to the bathroom for two hours. She is seen here lifting her pants at the end before walking away from her.
The incident comes as passengers continue to have outbursts on flights as travel surges internationally following the COVID pandemic.
Earlier this month, an unruly business class passenger was kicked off a United Airlines transatlantic flight after he started complaining that his meal choice was not available.
Multiple people, both in the air and on the ground once the flight was diverted, recorded the man ranting about how he didn’t get his desired meal, saying he was “treated like s**t” after shelling out an extra $1,000 for a business class ticket.
Passengers are usually offered a full three-course meal plus more food throughout the flight.
The airline later confirmed that flight UA20 from Houston to Amsterdam was forced to make an unscheduled stop in Chicago due to passenger unrest on July 9.
The decision to divert the aircraft and remove the man, who was recorded harassing staff and other passengers, was made before the Boeing 777-200 flew over the Atlantic Ocean.
The unidentified man in question had only been in the flight for around 2 hours and 30 minutes before being forced to disembark.
After refueling the flight, the passengers were able to continue their transatlantic flight to Amsterdam.
A United Airlines business class passenger was kicked off a transatlantic flight after he started complaining about his choice of food not being available on July 9.
In a separate video, filmed in the Chicago terminal, the unruly passenger is disembarked from the plane and then continues their discussion while speaking to United ground staff at the gate.
On another flight this month, two women began fighting in the air.
Video posted online showed the women freaking out, screaming and yelling at each other as other passengers physically restrained them.
Their antics drew the ire of those on board as frustrated travelers begged the women to “shut up” and “take a little class”, which only fueled their mania and led to one of them even hitting a man over the head as she made her way down the aisle.
After hours of failed attempts to calm them down, Frontier Airlines Flight 2143 from Philadelphia to Las Vegas was diverted to Denver so police could get the women out.
It is unclear if they faced any charges.
