United apologizes to couple who found full barf bag in seat pocket

A California couple returning home from an anniversary trip to Hawaii found an unwelcome surprise as they took their seats on a recent United Airlines flight. Janet Masters says she and her husband discovered a sickness bag filled with vomit, wrapped in a blanket stowed in the seatback pocket in front of her.

“I’ve seen and dealt with a lot of gross things,” Masters told CBS Sacramento. “Here’s someone’s bodily fluids that I’m being exposed to.”
