Wow, very cool.

I wonder how they keep all those towels rolled and stacked up so perfectly!

wow, 5 minutes of water? In my travels I've noticed I need at least 8 minutes, and that's rushing.

Brilliant! Still seems like a bit of a gimmick though, but a very well executed one.

Great photos. Thank you for posting.

Now, if you hit turbulence, I assume you have something to hold onto?

Five minutes is pretty short, but manageable if you go quickly (perhaps would need to turn off the water while soaping up). I was thinking it would suck if you ran out of time before finishing, but having the timer/gauge makes this much easier to pull off, I'm sure. Awesome pictures!

great pics thanks for sharing. I believe EK is the only airline offering this service... any airlines have plans to follow suit?
