BRITISH Airways staff fear a new jet puts lives at risk in emergencies — as one crew seat is attached to a toilet door. They say a crisis on an Airbus A320neo would trap passengers in loos because of crew sitting outside. One BA worker said: “If there is decompression and someone’s in the toilet, the directive is they need to stay locked in until the crew come off emergency oxygen. “At that point the passenger in the toilet will probably be dead.” A steward added: “It’s a joke the plane got certified.
