Delta apologized for a Michigan man sitting in the stool left behind by a service dog last week.

The resident of Bay City Matthew Meehan had already been on his flight from Atlanta to Miami on November 1 when he realized that the droppings were everywhere above his seat and the surrounding floor, he told news agencies.

"I was literally in it," he said.

Meehan said he asked passengers to clean up their help but only provided two napkins and a small bottle of Bombay Sapphire.

He cleans himself and the seat as best he could. When he spoke to a manager, he said, he was deterrent and asked what his problem was.

"I had to go back for a moment and say, okay, keep your temper." You do not want to be one of those people you see in the news starting from an airplane Meanwhile, I'm covered with feces "Meehan told Detroit's WXYZ.

He and his colleagues put a blanket on their seats for the rest of the flight. Upon arrival, the aircraft ceased to operate for cleaning and disinfection.

According to Delta, a sick animal served on the previous flight. Meehan offered a full refund and additional compensation.

"The safety and health of our customers and our employees is our top priority and we are conducting full research while we are following the right teams to prevent this from happening again," says the plane's statement.

However, the collapse of faeces follows several episodes of high-profile airlines over the past year. Last week, Delta again apologized after a Massachusetts doctor said he was racially profile by stewardesses as he tried to help another passenger.

In March, United Airlines also apologized for a number of dog-related incidents, including the death of a French bulldog in an apartment.
