Prior to boarding an American Connection flight from STL
the other night, the gate agent made an announcement that the lone lavatory aboard our embraer was out of order and that we should be sure to "relieve" ourselves prior to boarding.
The flying time to MKE
is only a bit over an hour so I wasn't worried for myself but the situation got me thinking. First off, is it me or does anyone else think it could be a big problem if there were children aboard. We all know children have to use the restroom at the least convenient times. Plus, this is an hour flight but what about those 3.5 hr RJ
flights across half the country?...would that even be legal? Does anyone know of any restrictions regarding working lavatories on commercial flights?
