    Perhaps the only thing worse than actually having to use a barf bag on a flight is finding out that someone else used it before you got to your seat… and it’s still sitting in the seat-back pocket. What’s a totally grossed out passenger to do? One couple turned to the media after a recent United Airlines flight that found them dealing with another traveler’s leftovers.

    A couple on their anniversary trip to Hawaii said they found a full barf bag in a blanket in the seat-back pocket in front of them, reports CBS Sacramento, and naturally, they weren’t pleased to have to deal with someone’s bodily fluids.

    The woman said when she handed the bag over to a United Airlines flight attendant, the contents spilled on both her and her husband’s clothes. Though the attendant offered them new seats, it was too late, she says — the smell was already on their clothes and they had to endure it for the rest of the flight.

    This is hardly good news for those who hope to see a "new United" Airlines. It reminds me of a particularly nasty TATL experience on UA, where the s̶t̶e̶e̶r̶a̶g̶e̶ coach passengers were handed $200 credit chits for a future UA flight by the FAs. The trash cans in the terminal were quickly filled with those chits...

    But the question is why a full barf bag of with someone’s bodily fluids is still doing after a flight in the plane?
