Plane diverted as dog relieves itself in aisle

A US Airways plane has been forced to make an emergency landing after a guide dog repeatedly relieved itself in the aisle.

Andrew Christie, a spokesman for the airline, said the flight from LA to Philadelphia made an unscheduled stop in Kansas City.

A cleaning crew on the ground eventually came to the rescue, but the journey time for passengers doubled to more than 14 hours.

The flight continued after the mess was cleaned up by US Airways staff on the ground.

The passenger and guide dog were rebooked onto another flight.

Mr Christie said the incident was a "rare and unfortunate situation".
