Has anyone had this on a long haul flight?

So this has happened twice. I flew from Mexico and Barbados to London (over the atlantic) both times I was in the bathroom and suddenly severe turbulence strikes and the seat belt sign goes off. I refuse to leave the toilet half the way through brushing my teeth. So I end up, toothbrush in my mouth, back against the wall, left arm against the wall and right holding the ceiling.

Am I the only one?

I don’t know you, but I would finish brushing my teeth instead of putting my hand on the ceiling

Oh come on you won’t DIE. Less so if you are in the toilet. You could just sit down and wait

Passengers severely injured due to turbulence and not wearing their seat belts is very common. In some instances death can occur and has in the past.

I don’t think that his case was THAT severe (maybe I’m wrong)

look you may want to risk it but I have had friends who have been on planes where it has happened.

P.S. where the Flight Attendant in question died and this wasn’t even over the Atlantic

No I’m not referring to his case with that post, I was responding to your previous question. If he had been standing in the lav and the plane encountered turbulent air that caused the jet to suddenly drop he would be thrown into the head board.

This hasn’t happened to me but I’ve got a fear of the seatbelt sign going on when I’m in the bathroom.

When I went in the bathroom the seat belt sign was off, but when I started washing my hands, turbulence kicked in. It wasn’t bad, but enough to get me wet from the sink.
