Economy-Class Innovation: Luxury toilets.

Japan’s ANA is the first airline to launch Boeing’s much-delayed and much-anticipated 787, nicknamed the Dreamliner; the first delivery is expected by the end of September 2011. And in all classes, ANA is introducing select women-only bathrooms and outfitting all bathrooms with windows and the Japanese-style bidet-toilets known as Washlets, which offer warm, pressurized water jets for a fresher clean than one-ply paper. They’re common in Japan (60 percent of households use them) and will surely make a splash internationally.
