kaoszero, for one it's not the aussie government saying this is needed, nor is it QANTAS.
it is infact the government of the USA!
it would be the same for BA, AA, UA, TWA, and whatever other planes fly to the USA.
and for two, i think your going a bit overboard.
so what, you might have to go back to your seat if someones in the freakin dunny, it's not prison.
back to the story
i think the US gov, is going to far.
i mean, how many people are gonna crap their daks waiting in their seat for the dunny??
and is the US gov gonna re-emberse those who do??
i know theyre not saying you cant go to the toilet, but how many people will try not going to the toilet for fear of being branded a "terrorist" or
a "security risk"
here's the situation
Flight attendent: excuse me, could everyone waiting for the ammenities please return to their seats
Jon doe: but i'll crap myself
FA: sir it is manditory that no-one ques to use the lavitory
Jon doe: but if i go back im gonna do a S#!t
FA: sir if you do not return to your seat i am going to have to report you.
Jon Doe: it's not like im a terrorist, i just need to do a dump
(everyone gasps at the word terrorist)
FA: sir i am going to have to report you
Jon doe: fine but can i crap first
FA: please go back to your seat
Jon doe: no
FA (on intercom 2 pilot): we have a security breach
Pilot: ok thank you i will report it to JFK airport
Pilot: (talking pilot mumbo jumbo) we have a security risk, requesting escort
(plane get's escorted, jon doe gets arrested, Media have a feild day)
