Here’s how it all began…
After I wrote the article, Hottest trend on the airplane since the mile high club, something odd happened. Readers began emailing photos of themselves in the lav! Of course that prompted me to write the article, Laviators Unite -Mile High Headshots! in order to share the official laviators photo gallery (where all the photos eventually end up)
(Hey look, that’s me, yours truly, laviating in the photo)
And then something truly amazing happened! One of my readers from Romania, George, created the official laviators music video …
MSNBC, NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC, and FROMMER’S followed up with stories of their own about the Laviators. I couldn’t believe it! You can Click here to listen to Frommer’s Sr. editor, David Lytle, interviewing me about the laviators (and life in the sky). By the way, that’s David over there on the right looking quite dapper in the lav.
Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, Michelle (pictured below), actually managed to get the word into Urban Dictionary!
And then Michelle one upped herself and made the laviator video featured at the top of this page! (I do hope she’s begun a new trend.)

I’ll feature the best of the best here! And you, too, can proudly wear a laviator T-shirt designed by Windtee, maker of aviation T-shirt art.
