It was taken on a 777-300 (773) - the original non-ER version.
Perhaps the lav was behind, not in front, of door 2R like I originally said.
Sometimes the seatguru lavs positions are wrong anyway.

There was plenty of evidence of Andreas Lubitz's state of mind without resorting to his medical case history - his diary, prior conversations with colleagues and internet search history at the least. In the case of Zaharie Ahmed Shah there is none of this. To quote from the official Factual Information report for the goodness-knows-how-many time:
Again, for the "goodness-knows-how-many time", you are assuming that all people in a similar state of mind keep a diary of their feelings, tell their colleagues, family or friends how they feel or what they plan to do, or, search on the internet how to do naughty things... Unbelievable...
If you are going to take those brief words in the official Factual Information Report as being gospel then what do you make of the Investigation by Egypt into Egypt Air 990?
"""ECAA investigation and conclusion
After formally ceding responsibility for the investigation of the accident to the NTSB, the Egyptian authorities became increasingly unhappy with the direction the investigation was heading and launched their own investigation in the weeks following the accident. The ECAA report concluded that "the Relief First Officer did not deliberately dive the airplane into the ocean" and that mechanical failure was "a plausible and likely cause of the accident".
William Langewiesche, an aviation journalist, said: "[I]n the case of the Egyptians, they were following a completely different line of thinking. It seemed to me that they knew very well that their man, Batouti, had done this. They were pursuing a political agenda that was driven by the need to answer to their higher-ups in a very pyramidal, autocratic political structure. The word had been passed down from on high, probably from Mubarak himself, that there was no way that Batouti, the co-pilot, could have done this. For the accident investigators in Egypt, the game then became not pursuing the truth but backing the official line."""
Only one of the conclusions on Egypt Air 990 can be correct; are you going to trust both conflicting versions just because they are official? Hmmm...
|Quoting UALWN (Reply 188):|
As you know, after MH370's disappearance, a full investigation was launched into the pilots' background. The official report mentions explicitly that nothing untoward was found on any of them.
"nothing untoward was found" means just that.
I doesn't mean that the said didn't exist.

Quoting UALWN (Reply 193):
I think a certain poster believes that by interviewing every person the cockpit crew contacted in the last 5 years the authorities will find the following:
1) a detailed plan for taking over the plane and a ditching that would leave no trace there by preventing the heathens on board from reaching heaven/hell or what ever
2) the exact location of where they planned to ditch the plane (probably tattooed on someones butt)
3) a jihad martyrs video implicating the Malaysian authorities
Again, too many people are assuming that if somebody did this on their own that they would have left a trail of evidence behind. That is just nonsense.
If the Captain did it and the Anwar verdict played a role, well, that was only hours before the flight. Only a fool would expect everybody to leave behind a trail of evidence if pushed over the edge just hours before committing the crime. It's not as if somebody with the Captain's experience would have had to do much planning anyway, expect for working out when (IGARI - ATC hand off - common sense) and the route it would take to where ever...
These folks who keep implying that "it must not have been one of the pilots because nothing has been allegedly found yet that incriminates them" seem to underestimate the human form...
