perhaps we should be discussing the fact that there is only 1 toilet for 28 seats!!

The A330-200s are gradually being re-refurbed, and an extra J toilet is being installed (with a loss of 2 J seats).

5 of the proposed 8 longhaul 332s (the ones with seatback IFE) already have toilets, with 6th under maintenance.

When I fly on Malaysian's A330's in J they have a pretty weird J class config.....there are 30 J seats in the forward cabin. On most aircraft the 30 seats would occupy the whole cabin between the front galley and the galley at doors 2. But on MH they've squeezed the 30 seats into a smaller area and put a small Y cabin of just two rows behind the J class seats in the forward cabin. So effectively, there's one loo in the forward galley to use for J and two loo's in the mid galley are for Y.

I was on a Qantas 737 from Karratha to Perth last week in business, and there was a steady stream of economy passengers using the business toilets, and not a thing was said by cabin crew. Both times I needed to use the toilet I had to wait for economy passengers. Virgin Australia with their little white rope reduces this in my experience.

Get the very obvious chip off your shoulder s4172249 and do the maths. There are so many people using the economy loos that they do get messier quicker.

No chip buddy; just a bit over the classism and elitism often displayed on this website. I choose to fly Y mostly, except for ultra long haul, and I fly for both work and pleasure, so the lack of recognition for a “business” traveller in economy on this website gets a bit grating after a while; in fact it appears that business travellers don’t fly economy according to this website? Adding to that by insinuating that we’re a back of grubs in the back end of the plane who can’t use a toilet? - well get stuffed then, and hold it in until your precious business class loo is available.

That's exactly the point. One lav for 28 J pax (that's business passengers) is an insult.
Happens often on Qantas. Between the flight crew and the economy passengers using the forward lav, business class passengers come off second best. Virgin does it much better with the rope, although some cheeky economy riders will still slip through when crew aren't looking.
