Last year flight attendant in my Facebook feed shared a story about a man taking such a long time in the lavatory that another passenger expressed concern and eventually the crew started to suspect a medical emergency. After much knocking he came out, iPad in hand. He went in there to watch a movie. No, they didn’t confirm what kind of movie.
But what happens when the passenger comes out of the lavatory, but leaves their device inside?
Saturday night Frontier Airlines flight 481 from New Orleans to Denver wound up diverting to Oklahoma City because a flight attendant found a computer in an unoccupied lavatory.

The pilot decided to divert. Passengers were removed from the plane. The bomb squad came on and determined it was a laptop and not a bomb laptop.
FBI agents managed to track down the passenger who owned the laptop. They “found that she was drunk, so she and her daughter stayed behind” while the rest of the passengers finally were on their way to Denver at 2:19 a.m.
