    Airline asks passengers to use the toilet before boarding...

    Airline goes green by asking passengers to use the toilet before boarding | Mail Online

    Anyone think this whole carbon emission thing has been taken far enough yet?

    All Nippon Airways (ANA) claims that empty bladders mean lighter passengers, a lighter aircraft and thus lower fuel use.

    Airline staff will be present at boarding gates in terminals to ask passengers waiting to fly to relieve themselves before boarding, The Independent reported.

    ANA hopes the weight saved will lead to a five-tonne reduction in carbon emissions over the course of 30 days.

    Yes, I think the rationale they present is absurd.

    How long till passengers are asked to strip naked and vomit before boarding to save even more weight?

    Well, Cheryl Crowe did campaign for using only one sheet of toilet paper at a time.

    I thought that might be the limit of absurdity.

    I hate to derail this so early, but PLEASE tell me I'm not the only one who can picture a giant letter "L" painted at the base of that tail...

    Most likely their real reason is to avoid early passenger trips to the airplane bathroom...

    I would think anybody who has flown and has had the misfortune of sitting in the back couple of rows of seats would support this idea heartily!

    If you can't go, or don't have to, will you not be allowed to board? Are they going to demand proof that you went?

    Won't all the water wasted by flushing consume more energy than they would be saving?

    They can make the plane even lighter by not having passengers.
