This is in the WHAT WILL THEY THINK OF NEXT category.
According to an article that I just read in Smarter Travel –
Japan’s All Nippon Airways wants passengers to use the bathroom before boarding, on the premise that ditching all that weight will make the plane more efficient.
But as if that wasn’t weird enough, the airline will post “loo attendants” who will (gently, I’m sure) encourage people to use the restroom at the gate. Now there’s a conversation I’d like to hear: “Excuse me, madam, but I couldn’t help noticing you look like you may need to pee.”
They’re giving this a four week trial run, but it’s already an airline POLICY.
What could possible be next? Oh – I DON’T want to know.
Maybe they should escort people into the bathroom and watch while they use a measuring cup!
Maybe they could just pump our stomachs before the flight? Or how about some complimentary liposuction before your flight – maybe if you opt for that they will upgrade you to 1st class even!
