Inquiring minds want to know! Should you and your fellow passengers tattle on a couple joining the mile high club on your flight? The internet has spoken and we have a decision (including what some Flight Attendants think), but what’s your take?
A flight attendants forum on Reddit received an interesting question recently when someone named Cat-Infinitum asked a simple question: should I have told the flight attendants that the bathroom near my seat was presently the rendezvous destination of choice for a couple ticking the “mile high club” off their bucket list.
Should I have told FA about idiots having sex in the bathroom? from flightattendants
The mile high club evokes various images for folks. The thought of doing the deed in such a semi-public place gets many people all fired up, but it’s not for everyone. And it’s definitely not allowed. However, that doesn’t mean people still don’t give it a go.
Several of the flight attendants in the subreddit weighed in:
- “No, it’s not that we don’t care it’s just, well if that’s what you wanna do go for it. The lav is a disgusting place.” – ljthefa
- “Short answer – No. There’s nothing we can really do about it. Not going to get someone in trouble for joining the mile high club, though, I’d ask them discreetly in the future to hold future activities for the ground. I’m also not opening the lav door. Ew no. Just a disappointed glare up on their exiting, a brief talking to, and disgusted grimace. People reaalllyyy don’t understand how nasty the lav is. Their bodies need to run through a disinfectant chamber.” – Sweet_Oliver
- “I probably would have just gone to the bathroom door myself, knocked, then said “Hey, can you two hurry, I have to pee!” In a loud voice. LOL” – Putyourmoneyonme80
- “1- No. I don’t get paid enough to break up to people having sex. 2- tbh if I were a passenger and I noticed that I would just go wait at a different restroom. Wouldn’t feel like my business” – Barbie_girl_skate
So, in other words. Go for it, I guess. The flight crew isn’t really that interested in stopping you (although remember it’s against the rule and you could get in trouble). But, maybe more importantly, the lav’s are absolutely disgusting. DISGUSTING. Like really, really gross. Unless you are going to do the deed within about 13 seconds after the seatbelt sign comes off you ought to just wait until you get to your hotel.

It seems to me that you will pick up all sorts of bodily fluids, not just the ones you want.
