Yesterday there was a story on the news about voice being given to the thought of pay toilets on airlines. Now we're all certainly tired of fees and some airlines, like Southwest, are taking advantage of that to advertise their lack of fees.

Generally these sections are the front of the economy section from the exit rows forward. Read more about Stealing from the airlines
