I get claustrophobic spending 30 seconds in an airplane bathroom.  So this is my NIGHTMARE.


A 32-year-old guy got on a Cathay Pacific flight from Newark, New Jersey to Hong Kong early on Wednesday.  And right after the plane took off, he used the bathroom.


But somehow he managed to get his middle finger stuck in the GARBAGE can while he was throwing something away . . . and couldn't get UNstuck.


So he had to STAND . . . alone . . . in the bathroom . . . for more than 14 HOURS until they landed in Hong Kong.


Once they landed, firefighters were able to get him free.  And the guy didn't need any medical treatment.
