"Bleedless Engines" and "Composite Structures" are all good and well but i think it was a big mistake on Boeings behalf not to exploit this unique selling point. A mistake which IMO, will cost them dearly.

Roberta, I don't think it will "cost them dearly" because do you really think the airline CEOs and the average passenger care if they can see a view while they are doing their business? I don't think they'll really care. They just care that it is fast, efficient, quiet, comfortable, and gets the job done. This most likely will not make an impact on their sales!  Nuts

For what it's worth, there are plenty of planes flying today windows in the crapper. And it's very very nice. Feels less like you're standing in a closet.

Maybe a view for guys while they just stand up to do their business but for the rest of it you get a great view of the door. Maybe a few strategically placed mirrors would get you a view out the window?

I'm still debating whether you took reply 1 seriously or not.

In reference to reply 8:

Is that really what i think it is? A preview of the first flying urinal?

Toilet ammenities are being discussed in this topic as well. As has been mentioned, there are already a few airlines who operate aircraft with a window in the toilet...

I know someone who doesn't really like toilets on aircraft because it's quite chlostrophobic, and there's no natural light etc..

What´s the point of having a window in the joint?
Natural light has got to be a good benefit  Big thumbs up

There was a topic about women designing the lavatories on Airbus aircrafts and I definitely see why they were complaining Big grin

In reply to 10 and 8 - yes that does look like a urinal. That is a great idea for a plane as large as the a380! It will save time. Plus, using a regular toilet for Number 1s invariably creates some misses, and this will help with that.

Now, let's see the shower and bathtub pics.

Windows in the crapper are nice, even at night. Takes away that whole "standing in a closet" feeling.

I don't know about the rest of y'all, but I want to spend the least amount of time as possible in the toilet.

It is just my opinion, but I am not too interested in passing the time in the toilet looking out the window. I still have problems with the floors and sometimes odd smells.

For the Mile-High-Club devotees, the window would be an added bonus as the most comfortable position would no longer have a close-up inspection of the wall - LOL! Actually you'd both get to see the view.

Lol!

Also remember the window (im guessing) is probably customer specific for each airline. Some may go for it others not (like SQ and EK with the A345 - SQ has it, believe EK doesn't have a window lav).

Interesting but not the first time this has been done. Saudi Arabian MD-90 first class lav has a window also.

The windows are spose to be Veiw out Not in, so I highly doubt if someone saw your doing your biz, plus your in the air!!!! I think the Lines to the bathroom will have a longer wait, rather than people wanting to get in and out as fast as possible, people will be relaxed and enjoying the veiw. .

Oh dear Lord... it's a good thing that wasn't posted in the Tech/Ops Forum.  Nuts

Good call, Northwest717.
