New HondaJet Has A Toilet With Seat Belts, Other Lesser Improvements

Illustration for article titled New HondaJet Has A Toilet With Seat Belts, Other Lesser Improvements

Honda’s line of private jets have always been technological marvels, and their latest revision is no exception. The new HondaJet Elite increases fuel range over the original, is quieter, and has upgraded sound and avionics systems. The big news, though, is the HondaJet Elite’s fully-enclosed lavatory, which has a toilet with full seat belts, allowing for the no-compromises defecation needs and HondaJet’s clientele demands.

Since more than 90% of our readers own private jets (estimated) this is very relevant news, and if I know our readership, they won’t even bother considering an aircraft if it does not allow them to lavishly evacuate their bowels at 485 MPH and in a 45 degree banked turn.

(Note: I have not confirmed with HondaJet (I have a message out to them) if the belt can be used with the seat up. Based on the apparent length of the belt material in the caddy on the back of the toilet, I don’t see why you couldn’t belt yourself onto the open toilet. If you can’t then HondaJet needs to solve this issue immediately.)

The new HondaJet has a 1,437 nautical mile range, which means there’s plenty of in-air time to move your bowels, which you can now do in absolute safety and security.

The HondaJet’s unique above-the-wing engine placement with their all-new noise attenuating honeycomb-pattern inlets that drown out high-frequency noise means that when you’re strapped onto that commode, the only sounds you’ll hear are either from the new Bongiovi Aviation audio system or the straining sounds of your lower colon as your body expels wastes in the comfort of your private jet.

Clearly, Honda’s new Flying Toilet is among the best ever developed, and while pricing or delivery dates have yet to be released, I’m sure this aircraft/bathroom will be the choice for discerning aerial defecators worldwide.

This reminds me of a story that I think first appeared on Deadspin where a journalist was on a private jet as part of writing an article and got some sort of digestive distress and the bathroom on the plan was actually in the main cabin with the other journalists and the only privacy was a curtain that was raised... does anyone else remember that story? It is still the most horrifying story i’ve read poop story I’ve ever heard.
