Use the Loo Right After Takeoff
The moment the seatbelt sign goes off after takeoff, I get up to use the loo—even if I don’t really have to go to the bathroom that badly. I do it because I know that at this moment, I won’t have to wait in a line, I won’t be blocked by the drink and food carts (which will be rolling down the aisles a few minutes later), and that by waiting, there’s a risk that we fly over a long patch of rough air and I won’t get the chance. So go when you know you can!
FYI: The First Class bathroom pictured above can be found on British Airways’ A380 service between LAX-London Heathrow. Here’s my post on my experience flying First Class on its inaugural flight.
