Aircraft engineers are hard at work on touch-free bathrooms to give you peace of mind in the mile-high potty.

What would this mean exactly? Foot-powered toilet flushes, automated trash bins, combination hand santizer/liquid soap, as well as a touch-free entrance system where you wave your hand in front of the door to enter, as long as it is unoccupied of course because we all know how embarrassing it is to open the door on somebody mid-business. For both parties!

Airlines are already taking extra precaution with on board bathrooms. Delta is using electrostatic sprayers between every flight.

Some companies are researching antibacterial materials across the entire plane, including of course the loo. The biggest problem is the toilet itself. Well, that, and getting your pants down. You have to touch for that clearly.
