New FAA Rule Turns Airplane Lavatories Into Deadly TrapsAir Worthiness Directive 2011-04-09. That's the name of a new FAA rule that might kill you one day. It dictates that emergency oxygen masks should be removed from lavatories in every commercial plane in the United States.
The new rule was just made public by the FAA after keeping it secret for a long time in the name of "national security". It was communicated to airlines previous to this date and it has already been enacted in 6,000 airplanes across the US commercial fleet as of Friday, March 4. But neither the government nor any of these airlines have notified passengers about these changes.
