Wait, WHAT? No! No one asked for this! I mean, it’s obviously a money grab. But still! Don’t make me suffer MORE. Uproxx reports American Airlines announced a plan back in May to take away some legroom and shrink the size of the toilets on their Boeing 737 Max jets to fit more seats. They’ve followed through on that, and it’s making flight attendants miserable too!
“The lavatories at the back of the plane are located between the passenger seats and the galley where the flight attendants prepare drinks and snacks for the fliers. When both doors to the lavatories are open, the flight attendants are sealed off in the galley, blocking them from getting to the passengers, the flight attendants complained,” a source says. “They also said the sinks in the bathrooms are so tiny that the water from the faucet splashes onto anyone attempting to wash their hands.”
The good news is only one 737 Max is currently in use. However, they plan to add 25 more every year between now and 2022! Whhhyyyyyy?
