Airline Profit Center

First food. Then luggage. What next? Another Airline Profit Center is in the wind...

From reliable sources... Airbus and Boeing are conducting feasibility studies on building the next generation airplanes with pay lavatories. What once was operated with coins, the new doors will be designed with the utilization of credit card machines.

The current challenge appears to be with Federal Aviation Administration certification process and the price. While some inspectors are under the assumption that urgency and whether or not the person needs to take a dump, or just pee, should be addressed. Regardless, we can assure you that we will never see the 10 cent rates as we did in the old days. Anticipate $1.99 for entry. What you do inside is your option.


Piggy-backing is prohibited and will be monitored. 
If you intend on having friend join you, 
your card will be charged double.

For emergency access, or to see what the couple ahead of you are doing in there together, you can unlock the lavatory by lifting the metal thingy and sliding the bar beneath.

Pay Toilets... just another way the airlines are here to serve you.


  1. Darby, I was predicting this all along. Once they started charging for meals, I knew the Johns were next... (sigh) What has this world come to.. :-)

  2. The only place it is cool to charge for the latrines is in your theme park in Roller Coaster Tycoon. I would charge 25 cents!
