    Dogs passing through the Detroit Metropolitan Airport now have an indoor restroom inside the McNamara Terminal to do their business.

    Detroit Metropolitan Airport worked with Delta Air Lines to set up a special area for service dogs and officially opened the facility on Tuesday. The area is officially named Service Animal Relief Area and has been nicknamed "Central Bark" by some employees.

    Thanks for posting this sobore! Yes, this is welcome for those pax travelling with their service dogs or those able to transport a small dog on a flight. However, one can imagine what might happen when a pax travelling with a cat decides to bring it to this area while dogs are present! :D

    Yikes!!! I better have my glasses on when heading to the can at that airport, lest I take a wrong turn and miss the urinals.

    As long as you don't navigate to the restrooms solely via scent like a dog would do you'll probably be ok.

    Good thinking! I'll be sure to hold my nose to be sure I wind up in the correct landing area. So if you happen to see someone on approach to the general area who's holding his nose while reaching for his glasses, just pretend you didn't notice me, as it'll be quite embarrassing.

    Eeeek. On the other hand if they positioned those all around LGA it might improve the smell

    As a former hunter you should realize of course that it all depends on the windage. Nothing to do with "Depends" though. :rolleyes:
