American Airlines shrinks bathrooms on new planes
(FOX 11) -
If you think the seats on airliners keep getting smaller wait until you hear about the new bathrooms.
A few years ago, airplane bathrooms were 34 inches wide on average.
Then they were shrunk down to 27 inches.
Now, the bathrooms aboard the new American Airlines jets will be just 24 inches wide.
That's a whopping two feet!
The airline is ignoring complaints from its own flight attendants and they've decided to install what they call economy bathrooms. That might be impossible for some bigger passengers to use.
