    United Airlines made passengers aboard a 10-hour flight from London to San Francisco endure the trip without toilet paper.

    In the restroom, a makeshift toilet paper holder was stuffed with cocktail napkins that read, "Fly by the tips of your fingers."

    United confirmed that the restroom was in the economy class.

    "The aircraft ran low on toilet paper and our crew improvised and provided customers with paper napkins," United said in a statement. "We apologize to our customers on this flight for the inconvenience."

    United recently placed dead last in an annual report measuring airline performance.

    Even ETOPS can't help this one! Heard they decided not to serve any food as part of the fix in economy class. (LOL) First class fed as usual.

    I thought for a second that Ryanair was going to be the airline mentioned-as O'Leary alway's treats his passengers like 'the brown stuff'!.
