A revolting video that appears to show faeces left on the toilet seat and tissues littering the gangway of a plane has recently emerged online.
The footage was reportedly filmed on an inaugural flight from Jeddah in Saudi Arabia to Addis Ababa in Ethiopia.
Since it was posted online on August 30, the clip has amassed over 124,000 views with many viewers shocked and disgusted by what they have seen.
The footage showed the poor hygiene in several of the plane’s toilets. These stills show what appears to be faeces on the floor and seat of two of the loos
Rolled up fabric can be seen outside one toilet while another had a brown stain outside the door.
In the footage, the person making the video, just off screen, is exploring the plane.
He starts outside a toilet, where a rolled up section of fabric was wedged against the door.
Upon opening the door, it appears that the toilet had partially flooded with water and bits of tissues all over the floor.
The videographer then walks down the gangway, strewn with litter, to another toilet.
A brown stain, which looks like it could be faecal matter, is seen on the floor just outside of the toilet with another portion on the floor just inside.
The clip then cuts to a third toilet where a brown lump that appears to be faeces is actually on the seat of the toilet before the footage ends.
The person filming the footage walked down the gangway and was confronted with litter all the way down.
According to the Arabic caption that was posted alongside the footage on Facebook, the footage was filmed on Saudi Arabian Airlines (known as Saudia).
The plane, a new Airbus A330, was making its inaugural journey from Jeddah to Addis Ababa, according to the caption.
The journey only takes 2 hours and 40 minutes according to the airline’s website and departs from Jeddah at 11pm local time.
Many viewers on Facebook expressed their shock at seeing the footage.

And Malcom Stevenson posted: ‘That is absolutely disgusting. I would hate to see the homes of these people and the hotel rooms.’
