The FAA is about to order airlines to put oxygen systems back in restrooms. It will reverse a decision made over fears terrorists could use them to start a fire during flight. The FAA says its doing an about-face to "eliminate a hazard that could jeopardize flight safety." The rule change will cover about 5,500 planes. Similar language was used in last year's order to take oxygen systems out of restrooms.
