(Scroll down for video) A man of Iowa, said that his clothes got wet from urine after sitting in a first class seat on American Airlines.

Mike Feinberg of Des Moines, said that he boarded the flight leaving from St. Louis, Missouri, before realizing that the liquid in his first class seat had soaked his clothes.

He smelled the liquid, and he realized that it was urine.

Feinberg said that a flight attendant gave him blankets and a plastic bag to place between the seat and his backside.

The flight attendant told him that an elderly passenger sat in his seat during a previous flight, and he must have urinated there instead of going to the bathroom.

After the flight landed, American Airlines allowed him to shower, gave him a pair of pajamas and issued him a voucher of $200.

Feinberg later got an additional $1,000 plus $500 for the suit he was wearing at the time of the incident. 10,000 frequent flier miles that was used for the trip, was also refunded.
