This is a clickbait article about a non-issue. How many "extra seats" are really available from a slightly smaller lavatory?

Few inches from the lav, few inches from the galley, few inches from thinner seat backs, and suddenly you have an extra row = 6 sears = 5% more revenue which, at the same operating cost, may be 30% more margin.

Maybe they do it not for extra revenue, but to avoid people sitting in the potty instead of their assigned seats to get more legroom :D. Or they want to make the overall experience a little more uncomfortable.

On the one hand, yes.

On the other hand...the doors interfering with the galley AND the neighboring LAV...the sink causing hydraulic flow reversal...

All of the modern scientific CAD-based engineering...and they botch basic stuff like this?

It's at least worth an AD.info chuckle- and homage to the ole (1950s?) distrust between pilots and engineers.
