    Default Plea to wee before boarding

    Hope this doesn't catch on with other airlines, especially long haul.

    Plea to wee before boarding
    4:00AM Sunday Oct 11, 2009

    The decision by a Japanese airline to ask passengers to relieve themselves before boarding adds a new dimension to pre-flight screening.

    In an attempt to cut down aircraft weight (hence fuel consumption, hence carbon emissions), All Nippon Airways says it will henceforth have "loo monitors" by boarding gates who will ask travellers to use toilets before entering the aircraft. The average bladder capacity being about 500ml, the airline says it carrys 50kg of extra weight for every 100 passengers who are busting for a pee when they board.

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.

    If they didn't bother to feed and water us during the flight, they'd save even more weight.
