No, seriously. All Nippon Airways is mandating that passengers visit the facilities before boarding. Apparently this causes the passengers to weigh less, thus saving fuel. Or something.
On the one hand, it’s always a good idea to use the nice big comfy restrooms in the terminal. I do it all I can. (Ha ha.) But to mandate it? How? Are the “loo monitors” going to follow passengers into the facilities and stand behind the men and outside the ladies’ stalls, making sure that tinkling noises ensue?
I would prefer to reserve my right not to eliminate. Even if I never use it.
