The New York Giants continue to fall apart at the seams after their wild card game loss to the Packers. London-bound travelers at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey were delayed more than two hours as staff were forced to clean up the mess on the Giants' plane that had arrived from Green Bay, Wisconsin.
United Airlines Flight 934 landed in Newark at 2:17 a.m., and was expected to depart for Heathrow Airport in London at 8:30 a.m., but the plane didn't take off until 11:47 a.m.
A passenger aboard the flight was not pleased with the situation as he tweeted:
Mark Kropf, another annoyed passenger, said that he had been sitting on the delayed flight when the pilot came out and explained that the plane had "needed extra help repairing and cleaning the interior."
“Upon entering the business class cabin, the cleaning scent only partially masked the alcohol smell. I had popcorn, chewing tobacco and other food crumbs on my seat,” he said.
However, a spokesperson for the Giants has already shot down these rumors:
A #Giants spokesman says the story saying the team flight back from Green Bay was trashed last night is "false."— James Kratch (@JamesKratch) January 9, 2017
Sian Welby, a British TV weather forecast-turned-Snapchatter, tweeted a photo of herself on board holding a pamphlet:
The flight was delayed by a total of three hours and 17 minutes.
The trashing incident just comes after Odell Beckham Jr. was spotted banging his head against his locker and hitting a hole in the wall after the Giants' 38-13 playoff loss at Lambeau Field.
A photo also made rounds on Twitter of the damage Odell Beckham Jr. allegedly made to a wall.
The airline refused to confirm whether the Giants had been on the flight from Green Bay, but they claimed the delay was due to a mechanical issue. The plane had a problem so they had to try and find an alternative aircraft, which resulted in the delay.
