A flight attendant reveals a shocking secret about airplane lavatories that will make you nervous to go about your business
A flight attendant has revealed a rather sinister secret about airplane lavatories – which will scare you the next time you use them.
Long flights require a series of toilet breaks – and a member of the cabin crew said they know everything you do there.
The anonymous flight attendant told Buzzfeed: “The toilets are near where we were seated.
“No matter how hard you try to cover up the fact that you’re dumping, it makes a different sound than when you’re just number one, so we always know.”
Any nervous toilet-goer might want to try using the toilet when the crew is busy on duty instead.
Erika Roth, a former flight attendant who has flown on commercial airlines for several years, says there are two moments on a flight that make for the best time to travel.
She told Mel Magazine that if you time yourself right, you could have up to ten minutes of quiet time to get on with your business.
According to Erika, the perfect time is as soon as the seat belt signs go out, because most people won’t need to go to the bathroom just yet.
Otherwise, the next best moment will come right at the start of the beverage service.
This is because most people are so keen on their free booze that they’re likely to cross their legs and wait rather than miss out.
Make sure you actually use the toilet though – another flight attendant revealed some of the weirdest places she’s found poop, including right in front of the toilet instead.
One thing not to worry about? Get sucked down the toilet.
The vacuum on the airplane lavatory only works at the opening of the discharge pipe and the lavatories are designed to prevent this.
Passengers have also shared their other horror stories while traveling, including dirty feet on tray tables.
