Airline bathrooms shrink to make room for more seats


Airlines have been shrinking seats and legroom on planes for years, and now they're going after bathrooms. Bloomberg reports that airlines are increasingly putting smaller bathrooms in their planes, retrofitting older aircraft with the tighter lavatories in order to squeeze in an extra row of seats. The airlines say the new bathrooms are just a few inches smaller than they used to be, however there wasn't all that much room to maneuver in them in the first place. Bloomberg says that pilots, flight attendants and passengers are all complaining about the smaller restrooms, but they're likely to stay, since the change generates revenue for the airlines.
