Last Update: December 9, 2015 / 14:53:59 GMT/Zulu time
The airline condemned media reports of a toilet leak stating it was impossible toilet waste could be leaked into the cabin due to the pressure differential used. The airline however explained that the water pipe of a wash basin in the right hand middle lavatory could not be turned off anymore, the basin overflowed, therefore fresh, clean water entered the aircraft cabin. Eventually a mechanics on board managed to isolate the water supply to the lavatory.
