LAVIATORS 114 – 128


My fave thing to find in airplane lavs–toilet seat protectors! – @Juliana6

Good to know, Juliana.  I MEAN IT!  I do.  Really, I do. 

Upper deck 747 no less.  My dad was a pilot for over 30 years and is now retired, and so you’ve filled the void in my life that was second hand crew chat and airline stories.  Thanks and keep it up!  All the best, James 

Ahhhh…thanks, James!  That is really sweet.  You’ve made my day.  I hereby declare you sweetest laviator.

Christmas Eve (hence the necklace) doing a SJU turn out of IAD. – Annette

 (Yeah, okay, so I’ve been kinda-sorta slacking in the laviator department – hence the necklace.  Tell me something I don’t know. ) 

I couldn’t pass up the chance to take a laviator picture with Mara Gorman, The Mother of All Trips. Here we are with one of each of our children enroute to the Bahamas on JetBlue airlines for a fabulous press trip at the Atlantis hotel; it just might have been the Mother of All Trips!  Best, Candice “CanCan” Broom.  www.MomMostTraveled.com / @MomMostTraveled

Can Can Broom, why can’t I have a name like Can Can Broom?  If Can Can Broom can get THAT many people into a lav, Can Can IS the mother of all trips.  Dang, girl, I think you may have set a laviator record!  Well…that is if I don’t count the airline crew of eight. 

My husband and I travel with our duck and frog and take their photo’s where ever we go. After reading your blog, I just knew that the duck, frog and myself had to become laviator’s! I took these photo’s on a Air New Zealand flight from San Francisco to Auckland last November.  I hope the duck and frog make it on your blog! –  Dawn 

O – kay.  That’s all I’m going to say.










Celebrating my awesome Virgin flight – @Dhepburn






On Christmas Eve I finally took the plunge and took a Laviator picture.  It was the first time in a while I’d been on an airplane with a lav and I didn’t want to miss my chance.  Normally I fly little two or four seat trainers.  Here I am sporting my DuPont Motorsports (Nascar) shirt, and I took the pic with my Verizon HTC Imagio phone.  My wife, @BlondeChampagne on Twitter and BlondeChampagne.com, wouldn’t join me ’cause she didn’t want people thinking we were joining the “other” club. –  @InstructorJosh

  What other club?  There is no other club!  Remember that, Instructor Josh. 

Laviator Love – @DavidOptimal

 Jeez, you’re telling me! (Chicka Bown Bown….)












Hey Heather, here’s my Laviator pic! Finally! Taken on an Air Canada flight from Montreal to Vancouver. Thanks!  – @Shawnosourus

(I love this shot.  It’s simple, yet slightly disturbing, like a mug shot , except he’s smiling – kind of – in the lav, which is…well…CREEPY – the whole mug shot subtle smiley thing!)


Here is my laviator photo!  Photoshopped for obvious reasons.  Please don’t use my name.  Maybe post it as anonymous or Mr. Friendly.

Dear Anonymous or Mr Friendly, you secret is safe with me.   


(While this isn’t exactly a laviator shot, they’re beautiful, they’re flight attendants, and they’re twins!  They also have tons of information on corporate flying.  And…well…it doesn’t get much better than that! 

We are identical twin corporate flight attendants and yes we work together –  same flights whenever possible .  Passengers love it.  (I BET!)  Seriously if you ever have any questions at all, please consider me/us as sources for corporate aviation or anything to do with life as a flight attendant who works directly for an aircraft manufacturer – worlds largest maufacturer of private jets! Bombardier Aerospace.  In my career I have trained probably around 40 different airlines around the world.  Like I said…if you ever have questions…please do not hesitate to ask!  (WILL DO…IN FACT, I’M THINKING FLIGHT ATTENDANTS OF THE MONTH!) Cheers – Lynnette Thate-McCoubrey (Flight Attendant Instructor – Bombardier Aerospace – www.bombardier.com )

Laviators 83-113









Laviator!! – Kara 



Taken while working a flight. The lav reeked, which is why I look like that. – Thomas  




 Finally had a chance to do it.  I’m a laviator! – Suzy    



 This was taken last week  in Kuwait on my miliatry charter carrying the heroes home from Afghanistan one year tour of duty –  Sherri




 Here is my wife’s  Michelle’s attempt at being a Laviator.    We will work on the technique on future flights.  It was an AirTran 717 from PHL to MCO on December 16, 2009 – David David M. Vanderhoof,  
Airplanegeeks & Plane Crazy Down Under Historian in Residence.  www.airplanegeeks.com


  Alitalia laviator – Matteo 

Matteo – Nice work.  Use of lav spray, a la Vanna White, always a plus. And way to work the subtley creepy look into the photo below.  Heather  



 Good evening. I’m wanting to join the Laviators’s Club. I have attached a photo of my self at 39,000 feet on the way to Georgia on Northwest Arlines Flight #4881 on Nov 18, 2009. Thank you – Mark    

No, thank you, Mark!



Following photos are from my flight from SLC to LAX last week. I attached a “traditional” laviator photo, but my other one has a story. I’ve had a runny nose for about 2 weeks, and the dry air on the plane was hurting my nose so bad. I used up all the tissue I had, and went to the lav to give the schnoz a good blow. Documenting the whole lav visit, I cannot lie that a kleenex couldn’t do the job. Mr. Index Finger had a mission. I look like a grotesque ogre, but that’s a perfect scare for a Halloween flight! (Don’t worry, I washed my hands well, then used hand sanitizer back at my seat) – Nicole 

Agh, TMI!   –  Heather     



 David Parker Brown, AirlineReporter.com   

David,  One word – wow.  This one is going into the hall of fame! – Heather  


  I took this pic in the middle of the night on a Delta B767-400ER in the F lav heading ATL-MAD.  I was way too relaxed from all the wine and pampering, and decided it was time to laviate.  The purser gave me quite a funny/disgusted/intrigued look when she saw me exiting the lav with my Canon. – Brian  

 Boy, is that a wet nap in your hand? – Heather


I joined – YAY!  Southwest LAX to RNO – @Chai_Guy






 I am a flight attendant at Southwest Airlines and your blog keeps me laughing when I am delayed, distraught or just want to be distracted – Craig-Lynne

Glad to be of service – Heather. 

(BTW, looks like Southwest is giving Delta a run for its money.  Watch out @Shultzyness, there’s a new prettiest laviator in town! ) 


 I fly for a private company and fly a Pilatus PC-12 not the biggest airplane but we do have a lav….and last night my captain was making fun of me because of the laviator picture I was going to take…I understand it might be not the greatest picture BUT I wanted to show you that even in Corporate aviation you are making a great impact! (and yes I will take a better one soon!!) – Andres www.flystrategicmoves.com





Taken on the SQ A380 from Singapore to London in September. Is this the first A380 laviator pic? It would be great to be the first!!! :) – TT



 Just after takeoff I snuck back to the bathroom with my headshot and camera and giggling to myself.  Finally, I was getting to join the prestigious ranks of the laviator club.  By the way, another couple kept trying to join another kind of club the entire night if you know what I’m talking about and I think you do.  I was on United Flight 0849 from PHL to LAX and was, sadly, NOT upgraded so I was stuck in steerage with a very small bathroom so I did the best I could!  I included my headshot because I thought that was fitting and/or creative!  I look very, very tired (me – not the headshot!) as it was a night flight.  Just moments after these were taken, the flight became continuously turbulent until Denver!  Whew!  Just a couple of days before this trip, I got cast as Julie in Carousel at a theatre in Philadelphia and I’m super excited.  – Amy Armstrong (www.operamouth.wordpress.com  

Congratulations, Amy!  And thanks for joining the club – Heather          



I just got back from our fifth annual weekend ritual of indulging in a pro football game, this year in the fine city of Denver.  As security consultants who spend quite a bit of time in the air with AA, we were able to redeem some of our hard earned AAdvantage miles and enjoy a fantastic weekend in the mile high city.  Speaking of miles high….here’s my shot! – James (Hopefully) Laviator #61   

James,  #61?  Why #61?  How bout #78. – Heather   


Ms Heather, I’m an AWESOME lil flyer. My mom couldn’t get me to look at the mirror, but can I get my laviator wings anyway?





thanks Heather! – Brandon   






Took this laviator photo between SFO and SYD on a UA 744 several hours into the flight. This was my first time crossing the equator and marked my switch from Pollywog to Shellback . This was segment #3 of #5 I flew while traveling from MCI to PEK last month. MCI-ORD-SFO-SYD-AKL-PEK-ORD-MCI was the full itinerary. It was a bit of a mileage run to maintain status for 2010.

The service I had (in coach) on the ORD-SFO-SYD flights were TOP SHELF. I went to the back galley on the UA 767 about 2/3 of the way through the ORD-SFO flight. Asked for a water. Male flight attendant poured, handed it to me, and asked, “Is San Francisco your final destination?” I mentioned that I was connecting to Sydney in SFO. He asked if I had ever been there before (no) and if I had ever been on a flight that long (also no). Then he asked how long I was going to be in Sydney. “Well, believe it or not, I’m actually connecting from Sydney to Auckland then to Beijing.” The flight attendant almost fell over. I returned to my seat. At initial descent into SFO the flight attendant came to my seat, thanked me for my business and handed me an unopened liter bottle of water and wished me a safe adventure. What a nice gesture!  

So I burn a few hours in SFO, then finally board the 744 to SYD. A flight attendant standing by her jumpseat asks “How many days are you going to be in Sydney?” 

I laugh and say, “Well, actually I’m only…”

She cuts me off and says, “Are you the one making all the connections to Asia?”  My mind is reeling.  She explains that a member of my ORD-SFO crew contacted the purser for the SYD flight and told him/her about me and told them to “take good care of him.” The purser shared the instructions with the SFO/SYD crew during their crew briefing. The flight attendant I was talking to said she was so excited to be the one who found me. She asks me for my seat number and gets on the phone to tell everyone she found their special delivery.  

I returned to my seat in awe.  For the next 14 hours I had named-service (“Mr. Meyer, may I…”) at least 10 times in COACH! The crew was unbelievable. Several stopped by to ask me about the trip. One offered a first class amenity kit. My glass was never empty and I’ve never experienced better service in my life.  All seven flights in the itinerary were on time. It was a great trip and I wanted to share. Little acts of customer service make a big difference. Big acts of customer service make a HUGE difference – Justin

Dear Justin, Okay…umm….something tells me the flight attendant who poured the water had a crush on you.  I’m just saying…  – Heather


 (WAVING HAND) I wanna “Laviator T-shirt”=)  I did a transcon this week.  The two flight attendants I was working with finally questioned my odd behavior of going into the lavatory several times with DEMO equipment and my cellphone/camera.  I proclaimed, “I wanna be a Laviator!” – Frank  

Frank, I hereby declare you a laviator.  What are you waiting for?  Go to windtee.com to get your shirt!  – Heather
