    Smallest lavatories are on 737-9

    Beware if you are obese you will stay cross legged all flight!

    Remember it's the airline requesting smaller laboratories NOT BOieng wanting to make it smaller.

    Terrible article. Or copy editor. Did whoever wrote the headline read beyond the first paragraph?

    I doubt it. Given what has passed as journalism recently.

    Not bad -- 69 yen?

    On the other hand the 787-8 bathrooms are quite spacious :)

    Lav on AA EMB too small 2.jpg
    The forward Lav in AA Republic E75 (EMB or EM-175) is the smallest Lav I typically see. I'm 6'2" and can't stand up straight. I wonder if the Q-400's are smaller. I've flown some but never used the lav.

    I assume that others here have read the design specs and realize that the passenger space in the lavatory is actually increasing. Wiring, plumbing and mechanicals are being shrunk by better technology and materials. Not really mentioned in tha Tribune article.

    A more "balanced" presentation from ABC News (excerpt):
    Boeing is enhancing the design of lavatories in the 777-300ER, making them smaller on the outside while increasing the volume of usable space for passengers," Boeing spokesperson Daniel Mosley told ABC News. "Basically, we are reducing the space allotted to pipes, wiring and support brackets and increasing the space available to passengers. It’s a smarter design."
    The company said that while the restrooms will be smaller on the outside, they will actually have larger sinks, more space about the sinks and more legroom in the loo.

    But ... But... But... That ruins the click bait that this story (headline) represents.
