Consider this the next time something doesn’t look or sound right to you, maybe you’re not crazy! According to, a passenger on a LOT Polish Airlines flight from Warsaw (WAW) to JFK spotted what he believed was a leak of some sorts as the plane was taxing. He promptly alerted the flight crew, who concurred and notified the pilots. The plane returned to the terminal and a leak was identified and fixed before the plane was allowed to takeoff six hours later. LOT is now determining how to reward the passenger. Only English version of the story here.

I discovered a LARGE fluid leak atop/center wing, that continue to widen as the flight went on, but the F/A said the pilot(s) were not concerned – nice.
