Japan's All Nippon Airways, which has asked passengers to visit the toilet before boarding to help the environment, said Tuesday it will fit its jets with a women-only lavatory.

ANA will introduce one female-only toilet per aircraft on international flights next month after a survey of women fliers identified it as the second most attractive service they wished for after being offered desserts.

I LOVE that idea. Men are absolute pigs in public restrooms.

Nonsense! All Nippon Airways doesn't want it's passengers to use the aircraft lavatories to help the environment; they want to cut down on their lavatory servicing costs...

now the men can't be blamed for when women "hover" over the toilet while being jostled around and make a mess...then don't clean it up.

Americans have hangups about bodily functions, but the Japanese are extremely anal about their bathroom habits.

As someone that has actually worked on airplane toilets, I can say that it's not the men that plug them up with used pads, dirty diapers, and whatever else gets carried in a purse. Come on ladies, it's not a city sewer that gets rid of everything. It's a 10 gallon bucket with a seat. That stuff stays right there.

It would not be the first time I used the Lady's room. If I have to go, I am going somewhere.

Then again, I could just pi*s on the floor, or in a bottle. I would have no problems whipping it out while seated next to a group of ladies to pee in a bottle. Then maybe the women would prefer both restrooms.

South Range Family, I started my USAF career on the T-43. HATED lav servicing duty. Arrived at next assignment and was relieved to find that F-4s have no lavatory!

Yea, and women don't poop either, right? I'm female, and I disagree with this statement. And, plenty of studies have shown that it it women's restrooms that are dirtier than the men's. Women are disgusting, clogging up the toilet with sanitary napkins/tampons and are known not to flush. They hover, pee on the floor and seats and don't clean up many times. If you're so afraid of sitting on the seat, just hover between parked cars or outside somewhere and stop leaving a mess for the rest of us. And I have no idea what they do in there that takes so long. There are always lines to the women's bathroom.

Men pee in urinals, which means that the actual stalls are usually unoccupied and since they are not used as often, they're cleaner. I would much rather use a men's public bathroom than a woman's.

Women shouldn't "hover"...it only makes things worse. As long as your skin is intact, and the seat is dry, it's fine. You will NOT catch your death from the back of your thighs. If folks didn't "hover", then the seat would be fine to sit on!
So, stop hovering!!!!!

Y'know, it never ceases to amaze me how women can make such a mess. No matter where the women's public toilet is, there are always seats with pee drops on them, and I always wonder HOW women can miss at that angle. And, worse, don't bother to pluck a couple sheets of paper to wipe it off.
