I used to be a flight attendant and this is the best time to go for a wee on a plane

A FORMER flight attendant has revealed the best time to go for a wee on a plane.

Plane bathrooms are not known for being luxurious, but when you're stuck queuing for passport control with a full bladder, they'll like the best thing in the world.

Mark Benders, a former flight attendant, has revealed the best time to go for a wee on a plane to avoid an uncomfortable journey through the airport.

He wrote on question and answer site Quora: "When you are on a flight and you start getting the feeling that you're getting close to your destination, the first time you feel the airplane slow down from cruising speed you will have about half an hour before landing.

"That would be a good time to use the lavatory, because the fasten seat belt light will go on soon and you won't be allowed out of your seat until the plane reaches the gate.

"You never know if your landing or arrival at the gate will be delayed."

Meanwhile, Sun Online Travel previously reported on the best time to go for a poo on the plane.

Erika Roth, a former flight attendant who flew with commercial airlines for several years, says there are two moments on a flight that provide the best time to go.

She told Mel Magazine that if you pick your time right, you could have up to ten minutes of peace and quiet to do your business.

According to Erika, the perfect time comes as soon as the seat belt signs are off, because most people won't need the loo yet.

Failing that, the next best moment comes just at the beginning of the drinks service, because most people are so keen for their free booze that they are likely to cross their legs and wait instead of missing out.
