As a Courtesy to the Next Passenger, Would You Not Break the Table?

Richard Branson has made no secret of not minding people joining the Mile High Club on his airline. According to this story, it would seem they're going at with some gusto:

Virgin Atlantic Airways is to replace tables in its newest planes because passengers have broken them during illicit trysts, the Sun newspaper said on Monday.

The $200 million Airbus A340-600, which was introduced several weeks ago, has a "mother and baby room" with a plastic table meant for changing diapers. But passengers have destroyed them by using them for love making.

"Those determined to join the Mile High Club will do so despite the lack of comforts," a Virgin spokeswoman was quoted as saying.

"We don't mind couples having a good time, but this is not something that we would encourage because of air regulations."

The obvious question missed by the reporter: is the airline replacing the tables with the same model, or are they planning on something more durable? Given that it's Richard Branson, my money's on the latter.
