According to former flight attendant Erika Roth, your best opportunity to use the toilet is after the pilot turns off the seatbelt sign and before drink service begins. But first, you should know the right way to get up on a flight without disturbing your neighbour.

Just make sure you don’t stay in there for longer than 20 minutes, or a flight attendant might knock on the door, Roth warns.
