no toilet queues!
The news is so entertaining these days: did you know that passengers on flights to the US will no longer be allowed to queue for the toilet? No gathering in groups. I assume that following this strategy wireless internet will be banned on flights to the States before it’s even implemented. And almanacs, of course.
I wonder how they’ll organise the toilet needs of passengers. Potties? Draw a number perhaps? Sign up before departure? The in-flight multi-user quizzes could be modified for this – but oh dear, imagine the secret messages plotters could send by losing or winning a quiz!
Presumably the courts’ recent ruling that passengers can’t sue airlines for deep vein thrombosis due to lack of movement while flying was noted by the US government before requiring no movement while flying.
Last month I flew out of the States unintentionally carrying one of those pocket knives with screwdrivers, axes and corkscrews attached to it. I was horrified when I got to Oslo and found it in my bag when I was rummaging around for something. I’d completely forgotten about it – obviously it should have been in my checked luggage. While I’m pleased to still have my pocket knife, which was a graduation present, I’m rather shocked that it wasn’t found and confiscated. Knives get through security but we’re not allowed to queue for the toilet.
