It's true. You can only take my word for it though. But I definitely witnessed it. I know that UA FA's do lock the lavs during takeoff and landing. But during flight?

No doubt Doc. No doubt. But this is a case of a true scotch double. Skirty McManpon allowed himself to be so intimidated as to watch xx # of others use the lav while he just sat there in misery.

This may have even been a triple, as Sax could have said an encouraging word to his seatmate to pull his big boy panties up and assert his need.

Then again, as we all know, all too often it's best not to intervene between women. Good judgement and timing is required and Sax may well have been too tired to accept the risk involved.

Wow. That would not have ended well for many people here. I may have gone up there, and if the lav was still locked, well, if you have to go, you got to go.

Yes it is very difficult to tell the sex of a cat from any reasonable distance.

The flight was short. 45 minutes. The window of opportunity was small. The thought crossed my mind to just tell him to go the back lavs, but first, I was in uniform as a non-rev. He was also seated in the F window seat, while I was in the A seat across with no one in between us. So that would have required lots of effort to shout across the aisle to just go while explaining not to tell anyone that that "pilot in uniform over there told me to go!" Therefore getting myself in trouble with the FA's.

To the passenger today who thanked me for not crashing into the side of a mountain. You ma'am, are a TOTD nominee. And, not crashing is setting the bar pretty low, don't you think?
