A Delta flight from New York City to Seattle had to make a stop in Billings, Montana, after the plane's toilets filled up and passengers couldn't hold it any longer.

The Billings Gazette reports the direct flight diverted hundreds of miles south on Saturday to make the emergency bathroom stop.

Delta says that upon landing in Billings, the plane had to taxi to a cargo area because a gate was not available. Delta says ground crews rolled a stairway to the airplane so passengers could "disembark to find relief of built-up pressures."

A flight from New York City to Seattle can take about six hours.
