I was told off once for asking the BOB cart to move for me. Ever since then I just go where I can. And as an oldie, when I need to go, I have to go.

"This whole frightful situation would never occur in First Class. People in First Class don't forget to flush. They're very diligent flushers. And if they do, it doesn't matter because their stools are perfectly formed and odour-free."

I think one or two contributors are flushed with excitement.

Earlier this year I was not allowed to use the economy toilets as I was on a J ticket with QR. The queue for the toilets just wasn't moving fast enough in our cabin. But the FA's flatly refused, standing at the entrance to the economy section with arms blocking the curtain.

I had once an urgent need to use front loo's whilst myself traveling in Y (row 6 or so); I was actually advised by CSM that I should preferably use the rear toilet but I have asked friendly if he can make a one-off approval for a gold member. I just made it in on time.

This is my position on the subject. I don’t really care if anyone likes it or not if I have to go I go where I can get it done with the minimum amount of wait/hassle.

Well, I used to be in the same boat ... until, mercifully, a 3cm bladder stone was destroyed with a laser wand (TMI) and my prostate cancer was resolved with a month of radiotherapy. I went just once on Wednesday’s 8-hour l/h, despite my age!

BUT ... from enforced habit, I still never bypass an airport loo. Just in case.

I'm off to Buenos Aires tomorrow at 7.15am by mini bus which has no toilet and it'll be a three hour journey.

They will stop by request, however as it means a diversion I prefer to keep it in. So instead of my usual three breakfast coffees I'll be limiting myself to one small one.

When this happens does anyone make a note of it and file a complaint with the airline instead of coming here to whinge about it?

The higher fare paid for premium passage includes the absence of lengthy lines for the lav. The pressing needs of the low-fare flyers whether medical or trolley-induced are of no concern. The cabin crew should redirect those from the rear who want to encroach on the privileges for which we have paid. The only way to prevent future reluctance or refusal to protect our privileges to promptly pee will be complaints to higher authorities.

If someone has an emergency, go for it! Yes, economy seats are supposed to be separate, and premium seats are purchased due to all the amenities. However, I would much rather not smell someone’s accident for the entirety of my flight. That would be more off putting than having a que near my seats for premium toilets.

If the route to the rear toilet is blocked by a BoB trolley, causing the queue to the front toilet to extend past the curtain, does a CE passenger have to walk back to the ET cabin to join the back of the queue or can he/she claim ‘priority peeing’ and jump the queue? Should a ‘peeing group’ be printed on the boarding pass to avoid any confusion?
