10-Hour United Flight Runs Out of Toilet Paper Passengers told to use cocktail napkins instead By Ruth Brown, Newser Staff Posted Jun 22, 2013 2:57 PM CDT 40 comments Comments United Airlines planes taxiing at San Francisco International Airport. (AP Photo/Eric Risberg, File) (Newser) – United Airlines forgot to stock a London to San Francisco flight last week with a crucial amenity. No, not the Sky Mall catalog, but something almost as important: toilet paper. Instead, the airline offered passengers on the non-stop 10-hour flight cocktail napkins, reports ABC Local. The napkins, unfortunately, had a slogan reading "Fly by the tips of your fingers" printed on them, adds the Daily Mail. A contributor to the message board FlyerTalk posted a photo of the napkins in a flimsy box with "toilet paper" scrawled on the front.
