HOUSTON – Airplane cabins can be cramped, hectic, and sometimes uncomfortable, but having to sit in a seat covered in vomit for a nearly four-hour flight is a bit much to ask of any passenger.

Especially when the plane crew forces you to clean the vomit yourself.

That's what allegedly happened to a pair of flyers who were headed home last weekend.

What happened

Sam Trail, of Houston, said he and his wife were forced to sit in a seat with fresh vomit on the back, of the seat in front of them, the floor and the seat itself.

"The seat in front of me was covered with vomit," Trail said. "They kept boarding the people and so we couldn't move. We basically had our luggage in our laps trying to avoid contact with the vomit."

They said they were on United Flight 2057 from Vancouver to Houston on Sunday afternoon.
