Travelers at Nashville International Airport found themselves in a messy situation when their bags were contaminated by sewage.
About 200 Southwest Airlines passengers' bags were affected thanks to a single toilet in a women’s restroom inside the terminal. The women's bathroom was positioned over the baggage handling area. When sewage flooded the bathroom floor, it leaked into the bag handling area and seeped into checked bags, according to the officials.
Replacement bags were offered on a case-by-case basis, the airline said, though some passengers opted to leave their compromised luggage behind.
The airline said the leak didn’t cause any flight delays.
