I have flown on many diffrent AB types, 319,320,321,330, and the 340 - yet they do have... What whould you call it? Intrusions perhaps in the restrooms over the commode. I think the only one that didn't was the 330 which had restrooms in the center also. I could see were it would be difficult for a man to pee, especially if he's tall.

Personally i dont see why in this day and age airlines cannot incorporate toilets into the seats. It would certanly save me getting up inflight and they could install more revenue producing seats where the toilets once were.

"Or they could just put Depends (for people with bladder disorders) in the seatback pocket along with the barf bags!"
How will someone put them on? And that's a little bit embarrassing, don't you think?

The downstairs toilet on the LH A340-600 is great. I could pee standing up.
But the worst enemy of those who believe toilets should be ergonomic is the airlines.
On a BA flight in J class seated upstairs in a 744 some genius had designed the baby change table to fold up from a location beside one's knees when seated, which meant that one's friggin* knees were so close together it was almost impossible to use the toilet paper without standing up.
You'd think the world's favourite airline (not) could adopt a successful design, like a folding down baby change table, just one of many examples of stupidity on that carrier's part that has me dreading the next time I have to fly them.
The other think that struck me last time I flew them through LHR was watching a whole line of people waiting to check in under a giant Club World sign being asked by a cretin whether they 'really meant to be checking in in economy?'. Now if that isn't insulting, and a foolish waste of a wage, I dunno what is. Like he didn't even ask in any language other than english, so the logic of the question totally failed me, like the toilet.
