ANA to have women-only toilets on international flights

Starting in March, ANA planes will have toilets designated as women-only on most international flights. Apparently, they’ve been getting a lot of requests. I’m not sure how I feel about this — maybe subconsciously there’s a part of me that is a little bit relieved when a woman exits the plane toilet, and not a man. Maybe because in my experience men tend to do things like drip pee on the floor or leave a couple of stray hairs behind on the raised toilet seat as a present. However, women on average take a much longer time, and I could see this causing some major crowding problems in the aisles.

  3. I’m usually the last guy to be politically correct, but I don’t think the stereotype is true at all. My wife complains incessantly about women’s toilets in Asia and how the toilet seats often have pee on them. I don’t think making toilets women only will make any difference to hygeine.
