As if the recent wave of cancelled flights wasn’t crappy enough…

A pilot named Garrett has gone viral on TikTok after giving the scoop on what happens to the poop after you flush an airplane toilet. 

“When your on an airplane and you gotta go, where does it go?,” said Garrett, 29, based in Dallas, Tex., in his trending No.2 tell-all, which stockpiled a massive 3.9 million views. 

“Did you know that whenever you flush the toilet on an aircraft it actually doesn’t dump out into the population down below?,” he continued. “It goes through plumbing to the rear of the aircraft in the seal compartments, where the grounds crew at the destination will remove all that waste.”

Contrary to popular belief, rather than fall from the plane and onto people's heads, the waste is stored in the aircraft's plumbing system until the plane lands.

Garrett, who regales his over 483,800 social media followers with his piloting prowess and kooky aircraft facts, went on to reveal that a toilet on a Boeing 747 can be flushed over one thousand times and can hold more than 320 gallons of excrement. 

His potty tea struck viral circulation amid the ongoing flight cancellation crisis that’s plagued travelers during the holiday season. 

Southwest Airlines most notoriously canceled over 2,600 flights this week, owing to outdated scheduling systems and a deadly winter storm that coincided with heavy staffing issues. 

And according to flight delay and cancellation statistics site FlightAware, a staggering 4,471 flights across a number of airlines have been canceled on Wednesday.

However, neither the crappy traveling circumstances nor the truth about airplane poop seem to be troubling the majority of pilot Garrett’s TikTok followers — mostly because they’re too mesmerized by the fly guy’s good looks. 

“Sorry, I didn’t pay attention to anything you said, I was too busy admiring your beauty,” confessed one awestruck viewer. 

“Yes, you can be my pilot anytime,” gushed another. 

“What airline do you fly for… I suddenly feel like traveling,” a separate but equally saucy commenter penned. 

Others, however, confessed to believing that mid-air waste was expelled from the plane and onto the unsuspecting public.

“I always thought it goes down peoples heads,” said one spectator. 

“Ok, now I know. I use think it does that down over the sea lol,” copped another. 

“Then why did a brown glob fall into my sisters car through her sunroof?,” questioned a skeptic. 

Meanwhile, one noted their newfound appreciation for airline staff: “Grounds crew deserves a raise.”
