Airplane toilets to shrink in size

Airplanes try to free up space for more seats

Plane toilets tend to be smallest in size than most. But recent examples in the airline industry show a new trend of toilet downsizing. And Air Canada’s new B777-300ERs (entering service this summer) is a good example of that.

Now Delta Airlines has ordered a newly designed toilet which is smaller and be installed on its B737-900s. This will make space for four additional seats in the economy class cabins.

The airline says that passengers will not notice the difference.
