'Go' Before Flying

A Japanese airline asked passengers to visit the lavatory before boarding in an attempt to reduce carbon emissions.

All Nippon Airways (ANA) sayd empty bladders meant lighter passengers, which means lighter aircraft and lower fuel use.

It hoped that the weight saved would lead to a five-tonne reduction in carbon emissions in the course of a month. ANA started the policy as a one month trial but stated it would be expanded if successful.
