Photo Friday: Little Laviator

The Littlest Laviator
The Littlest Laviator

Heather Pool, who writes a really funny blog about her experiences as a flight attendant posted earlier this year about Laviators. In case you haven't heard, a laviator is a passenger who takes mile high headshot in an airplane bathroom. Heather didn't invent the idea, but she coined the name and posted about it. Pretty soon it became a phenomenon. On our most recent flight, I thought I'd add my own picture to the mix. Here it is, Heather, baby Eilan on his 4th flight ever.

P.S. If you were hoping for something a little more Halloweeny, check out last year's Photo Friday about Halloween in Paris

    Hi Debbie
    Something like this is bound to take off (literally) people do the strangest things on a plane. But this one of you and babe is cute, a sure story teller of why Mom took it, in the future.

    PS. Sorry there's a false link from me sitting on the photo friday site that needs deleting.

    I had no idea there was such a phenomenon. I will add my photo, next time I fly!

    I have never heard of such a thing. Yet another way to amuse yourself on an airplane!

    That is absolutely hilarious! I wish I had known about this last week because we spent a lot of time in the airplane restroom due to my newly potty trained 2yo wanting to check it all out!

    Maybe this is something i need to start a collection in along with the cheesy tourist photos, although the backdrop could get a little samey after a while

    @Jen my big kids are totally freaked out by the airplane toilet - too much noise. I doubt I could have gotten a shot with them.

    This is so funny :)

    Wow ... just a baby and already on his 4th flight! too cute :)

    Malta: That was my thought; 4th flight already! I didn't fly for the first time until I was 22 years old.
