Oman Air's New Toilet Is Set To Flush The Competition
If there’s one sign that the economy is on the rebound, it’s probably not the fact that the market topped 10,000 yesterday. The true test of economic recovery comes with crazy luxurious lavatories aboard commercial airliners. Back before the bust, Emirates was all about promoting their shower for the classiest of first class flyers lucky enough to travel the world on the A380. However, now Oman Air wants a piece of the action, and they’re going to do it with their toilet.
Details are limited at this point, but we’re suckers for their trap, and we want to know more already. The airline is ordering up some new Airbus A330-300 aircraft and they’re planning to install the swanky bathrooms aboard the new planes. Only the pilot and first class customers will have access to the lavatory that sits right behind the cockpit. Besides the toilet there will be a bidet, Amouage products, and plenty of other lotions, colognes, and perfumes to keep passengers so fresh and so clean.
We really need some pictures to see what truly sets this thing apart. We’re hoping that it’s a solid gold toilet, because if not, it’s hard to beat a shower that’s in an airplane bathroom. We do know that the airline is planning to equip the planes with in-flight WiFi and cellular phone capabilities. So if you see someone strolling into the world’s nicest airplane bathroom with a phone or laptop, you might want to return to your seat, they are probably going to be a while.
