In an attempt to reassure the trapped passenger, an air hostess wrote a note stating: ‘Sir we tried our best to open the door, however, we could not. Do not panic. We are landing in a few minutes, so please close the commode lid and sit on it and secure yourself. As soon as the main door is open, an engineer will come.’ The note was slid under the lavatory door.

Upon landing at Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) in Bengaluru at 3.42am, engineers immediately boarded the plane and managed to break open the toilet door, ending the passenger’s two-hour ordeal. The passenger, who was reportedly traumatised due to claustrophobia, was promptly given first aid. SpiceJet has yet to comment on the incident."
