KANSAS CITY, Miss., May 30 (UPI) -- A US Airways flight from Los Angeles to Philadelphia was forced to make an emergency landing in Kansas City after a service dog started pooping in the aisle and the flight crew was unable to contain the mess.

The passengers aboard US Airways Flight 598 could only sit back and watch while a big dog defecated in the aisle not once, but twice.

After the dog went to the bathroom for the first time about an hour into the flight, the crew did their best to deal with the mess but they were unable to contain the smell.

"An hour later, it still smelled bad, and after they cleaned it all up, it pooped again," Passenger Steve McCall told INSIDE EDITION. "A couple of people started dry-heaving, a couple of people were throwing up."

"The Proud, The Few, The @USAirways dog [expletive] cleaning crew," passenger Chris Law wrote on Twitter.

The flight had initially been delayed for two hours because of a fuel spill on the tarmac, so it's quite possible that caused the dog to get a little bit backed up.

The dog's owner did apologize. "She said, 'Hey, so sorry, I want to get all your addresses so I can give you a Starbucks gift card,'" McCall said.
