You would think that you have complete privacy when you are using the bathroom on an airplane, but that isn’t the case. Anyone can actually open the lavatory door at any time, and it was a secret among the flight crew for several years until someone spilled the beans. The flight crew needs to be able to access the bathroom even when it is locked, just in case a passenger suffers any injuries.

The trick to opening the bathroom door is to slide the lavatory metal sign to the side, revealing a little lever that will allow you to open the locked door.
