Signs: You'll need to use the one in the back of the cabin
Last week I flew Southwest down to San Francisco and got to the airport early enough to get a nice window seat near the engine. Well, it was early so I actually slept most of the way down but as were were coming in to the Bay Area I looked out the window at the engine and noticed a strange place for a bit of iconography. Along the inboard side of the engine was a familiar image with a slash through it. It struck me as odd, so I whipped out my handy iPhone and took this picture.
Apparently, there are no men's rooms inside of the engine. Or does it mean that you can't store people inside the engine. Just like the photos in Amsterdam, I wonder if this means that every other part of the plane is, in fact, a men's room.
