I hope this policy is in place on a flight I'm on someday just so I can take a marker into the bathroom and write "Here I sit, broken hearted. Paid a buck and only farted" on the wall.

I'm pretty well-traveled. 15 countries (though only Germany and Turkey in Europe), a few islands in the Caribbean - and I don't ever remember seeing where you have to pay for a toilet. Where are you talking about?

"But I think it's a logical development, if you use the toilet for example in train stations in England you pay to use the toilets. I don't see any reason why people on board an aircraft wouldn't pay to use the toilet."<snip>

...and in an unrelated case:

Need for bathroom on flight leads to felony charge

ATLANTA—A man rushing to get to the restroom on an international Delta Air Lines flight has been charged with assault, accused of twisting a flight attendant's arm.

Joao Correa of Concord, Ohio, says he had a bathroom emergency but his path was blocked by a beverage cart during the March 28 flight from Honduras to Atlanta. He asked if he could use the lavatory in business class, but was told no.

Federal Aviation Administration policy requires passengers on international flights to use the restroom in their seating class.

Authorities say the 43-year-old man is accused of pulling and twisting the flight attendant's arm. He was arrested when the plane landed in Atlanta and charged with assault.

Correa was released after two nights in jail, pending a hearing.

What exactly is a 'bathroom emergency' ?? Does one declare a bathroom alert like a defense condition? "We are now at DEFCON #2, condition brown, repeat, #2, condition brown" :-?
