ok, my wife and i are heading out to the US in April on Qantas's new 744ER MEL-LAX. We have always wanted to join the mile-high club and I reckon we're now ready for it. I fugured..it's a long flight with lots of 'night'. It's the most beautiful new aircraft in the world with nice new toilets. (see my recent trip report). I've booked us a seat at the back of the aircraft in the 70s where it tapers off to 2 seats. We'll sneek in in the middle of the night and go for it hopefully.
I want to know:
Does anyone have any tips? Best toilet or when to go? Is it actually allowed? (we're going to try anyway)
What are people's experiences?

Don't quote me on this, but word out there is that on some airlines like Lufthana you can get put on their "Flagged" list if your caught. As in if you try booking another ticket with them, they will denie you.
My advice for you, go into an inboard washroom, the ones near the outside have a curved wall and thus limits your space.
P.S. Don't forget to visit www.milehighclub.com after

Dear Qantasclub -
Hope you do not try on my flights... I may have a surprise for you.
(1) When one of my flight attendant reports such practice of sports, suddenly my autopilot starts going up/down at 120 cycles per minute...
(2) I generally make a PA to the passengers requesting the culprits to stop shaking the airplane...
(3) I instruct my flight attendants to serve a bottle of champagne to the new graduates, and I sign an official diploma "Mile High Club" with an official airline seal, and personally hand it over to the couple.
(4) By the way, FL 370 is approximately 7 miles high... Everyone in Denver, USA belongs to the (one) Mile High Club, far too common...

I happen to be on the bad list of my director of operations...
He gets some 6 nasty letters from passengers, each month, complaining about me.
(One per flight generally)
Then he calls me to his office, rolling his eyes, "not again, Skipper, what did you do now...?"
But I forget to say he gets 100 letters from happy and laughing passengers as well...
Some 4 months ago, I asked the F/A to knock on the toilet door, and offer a box of 12 "rubbers"...
FYI - I have half a dozen of such blank diplomas in my flight case as supply.
You gave me an idea, for the next flight, if the couple "does it" in the cabin.
I will have a flight attendant bring an extinguisher next to them...
(In case the girl is too hot...)

Thanks, all, for the tips. I reckon after the meal when the cabin lights are dimmed and everyone goes to sleep, and the post meal toilet rush is over would be the perfect time. Only downside is the toilest won't be as clean as they are at the start of the flight. Hmmm.
