    FAA: No more emergency oxygen in airplane lavatories

    Citing a security vulnerability, agency orders equipment disabled in 6,000 U.S. planes

    Citing security concerns, the federal government in secrecy last month ordered every airline in the United States to remove emergency oxygen in every lavatory on all 6,000 domestic commercial aircraft.

    Under Air Worthiness Directive 2011-04-09, made public this week, the Federal Aviation Administration directed all airlines to disable the lavatory oxygen generators to "eliminate a potential safety and security vulnerability.”
