“…’Some people put anything down there: towels, spoons, glasses, diapers. They behave as if they were at home," said Frank Dohrmann, head of design support and cabin testing at Airbus's main German plant.

“To handle the waste produced by up to 800 passengers, Airbus designed plumbing capable of pumping sewage along the 60-metre length of an A380 in about two seconds….

“That equates to more than 100-kph (60-mph), which could be a sanitary speed record.”
