If anyone has seen the lavatory signs on the 77L and 77W, they show the location of the lavatories inside an airplane outline. However, I was wondering, does anyone know how do they indicate whether the lavatories are occupied?
I know that on the 737NG, 753, and Signature Interior 767s, a large red X illuminates when the lavatories are occupied. However, does anyone know how the 77L/77Ws ones illuminate when occupied, if they do at all?

Quoting breaker1011 (Reply 1): The red x only appears when BOTH lavs in a section are occupied.
It's easier that way. Otherwise, people would avoid a set of lavs, because the communication isn't very clear.
It's the same in the tail of a 737- the X only lights up when BOTH lavs are locked... or, incidentally, when the flight attendants decide (for whatever reason pops into their very unique minds) to latch the lav lights on.
That annoys me to no end- they latch the light on, and then you can't tell when the lav is available!
