Flying? better keep some cash handy…

…. yes, there were times I have boarded domestic planes without having any cash in my pocket. When my wife told me about this news, I laughed saying it could just be a humor with the economic situation we are currently in. However, I noticed this post on Wired magazine today, that an airline indeed is planning to charge passengers for using the restrooms onboard. Given the conditions, I would probably not get surprised if airlines say, they would charge some money if you take a carry-on bag on board like they way some airles charge for Check-in bags now. I know the snacks, drinks, water are sold on-board, but it is interesting to see that creative idea of having a Pay-restroom on-board.

I wonder if that is also timed like pay phones – a dollar for 3 minutes and 50cents every minute then on. Of if it were to be pre-pay for “n” minutes, make sure to get out within that time, else no water, paper towel, hand soap dispensed!

Not sure where the economy leads us to, or I should probably say another way, we aren’t sure where we take the current economy towards…

Necessity Influences Creativity!



  1. I went camping in Vermont once..they had a showering facility outside the campground where you’d get hot water for 50 cents but it only lasted 3 minutes. You’d better be lathered and ready to go..if not you’d end up with soap all over because the water stopped without warning…

  2. @Vijay, hehe – hope such a situation won’t become inevitable flights on-board 🙂
