Thoughts on a Flight ::

While getting ready to depart from Houston, the small screens above our heads in the Boeing 737-700 tilted down into the 'optimal viewing angle', and a bald man introducing himself as the CEO let us know that Continental operates the youngest fleet of aircraft in the United States.

This fact set on the back of my mind during the flight, and at some point later, I had to use the 'facilities'. While washing up I noticed that, even though smoking on most domestic flights was banned in 1987, the lavatory doors still have ashtrays integrated into them. Can anyone explain to me why, after almost twenty years, the "youngest fleet in the country" might still have ashtrays in the lavatory doors?

I'm gonna guess because some plane manufacturers make planes that are sold in every country and other countries allow smoking?
