American Airlines Now Charging $15 For First Checked Bag; Are In-Flight Pay Toilets Next?

American Airlines today announced it was charging $15 for the first checked bag.

Don't be surprised if the next new fee charged by airlines is for in-flight bathroom use.

Entrance could be regulated by credit or debit card swiping - - maybe combined with an airline specific gift or credit card that could be used to buy meals, beverages, even magazines, pillows and those oversized handkerchiefs they call blankets.

Think about it. Each drink or meal purchased could include a prepaid visit to the bathroom, so they could get you coming or going.
