Men Rejoice in Shorter Plane Bathroom Lines
It seems like an idea that's been a long time coming, but a German manufacturer is ready to put men's urinals into airplanes, including 747s and A380s. Apparently they've realized that not only is it a smart idea to reducing queuing time in flight, but statistics show that the majority of coach passengers are men.
The new one-man urinal cubicles take up much less space than conventional toilets, of course, and they also save water since they don't need to be flushed so regularly--according to the manufacturer. No airline has yet owned up to ordering any, though.
Somehow, our immediate thoughts went to that other common use of airplane bathrooms, joining the mile high club. But if these cubicles are even smaller than regular toilets, it'll have to be a mile high club for highly acrobatic passengers.
