    Many moons ago PIA (acronym: Please Inform Allah) was a very good airline. I have had many good experiences with PIA. Many good memories with PIA crewmembers, but that is another story entirely.

    Maybe the organizers of the next megado can take inspiration from this and get more MPers on the flights. SMD4 -- now featuring Tommy and Potty class?

    Or Ryanair class for seats that are standing room only.

    Surely flying in the lavatory is less safe and less pleasant than just standing near the FA jumpseats and the galley.

    So what happens if someone actually needs to use the restroom? Do you trade seats?

    "Sorry, no take-backs!"

    Something smells here ;) What about the small problem of lack of seatbelts? Or do PIA have seatbelts in the toilets?

    Have you seen those little water-proof bags in the seat pockets?

    Well if it was a 777, like the picture had, they should have a few lavs on board; I wonder if they were short on meals as well.....

    They must...I mean have you ever tried to go to the bathroom after eating Indian food?

    I know I know, two different countries, but they're close enough to assume their food is the somewhat similar. :D

    Perhaps PIA can join Ryanair and Comtel Air and form the Dodgy Airline Alliance. Maybe add in Lion Air to that mix!

    I lived in Pakistan for a couple of years. We used to call it Piss In the Air or Panic In the Aisles.

    makes sense if the lav is occupied with another passenger! ;)

    Personally I'd have just said leave an overhead bin available and go lie-flat!

    I'd have taken the jump seat in the cockpit.
