    BIGGER toilets to cater for overweight passengers, augmented reality projections of the landscape below and reversible seats so friends can sit face to face are all innovations that could all soon be part of international flights.

    The year's Crystal Cabin Awards have released a shortlist of 47 entrants which are in the running for the seven awards in aircraft design features to be announced this week at a Hamburg aviation trade fair.

    Ummm, is that a chair in the 'loo in addition to the big boy toilet? They don't usually let 2 people into there, unless you are Ralph Fiennes or .....;)

    I love SAS' window in the toilet, feels less claustrophobic.

    Maybe some people need to rest immediately after a hefty expulsion?
