I know that most business class lounges have showers available for those who utilize their facility. I'm sure there must be a fair amount of economy class passenger who have a long transit and who are very tired and wouldn't mind taking a shower to freshen up as well. I for one, would be willing to pay a bit extra for this comfort. Just wondering why airport or airlines never looked upon this as a money making venture?
Also never understood why the concept of a "yotel" at airports never quite caught on besides Heathrow and Amerdam Schipol. That's why i'm not in marketing.

Incheon International Airport has public showers. There are in the departure side of the airport. I think it is $3 for a towel and a few more dollars for toiletries if you need them. Each shower room has a toilet, shower, and sink. I use it whenever my connection time allows. It is great!

Quoting Birdwatching (Reply 2): I once used airside shower facilities that were openly available at STN. This was around 2004 or 2005. I guess they figured that every good campground needs showers.
They were on a Stansted Airport documentary shown earlier in the year- unfortunately the fact that they are free and unregulated makes them desirable to people who want to shag and sh*t in them. This was according to the guy who was in the segment on the TV programme.
