I flew UA this last aug. to LHR from ORD. Return was from LHR-IAD-ORD.
On all of the legs the FA's seemed to have added a new item in the pre-T/O speech that they give. For our customers in FC you may use the lavs in the front, Economy class your lavs are in the back you may not use the ones in front."( in this case middle on the widebodies)
Now on a 777 and 767 there are lavs at the head and behind of cattle class. So would this be a security type issue or a UA policy thing? Also are any other airlines doing this?

Both. The security issue is having too many pax hanging around the cockpit door. So they have only F class pax use it. The normal annc should ask pax to use the lav in their ticketed cabin (which bugs me, b/c what if you were ticketed for coach, but upgraded?). Business has some right in the middle on the 777 and econ has them way in the back and in the middle.

Alaska Airlines flight attendants advise customers in the main cabin that they're welcome to use the First Class lav, but that they cannot stand or start a line forward of row six (the first coach cabin row) to avoid having people congregating in First or near the cockpit door.

I thought lavs in first class were always reserved for first class passengers. Also heard American makes an announcement stating that 'crossing of cabins is not permitted' - meaning, Y class is restricted to Y class, J to J, F to F, etc... no congregating of pax onboard the a/c period...
