On another thread there was discussion about using a private potty if there were no public ones and having a pass to let you do so. Well I have another issue have you ever waited in line for a port-a-potty only to get out and have to get back in line again.  I did this until I was sure I could make it back to the hotel without having an "accident."
 
Although my ailment is IBS I definitely have the big D issues.  I could use a pass to bump everyone else in line...I know, I know that's not fair.

When you register with the CCFA you get a card saying you have a condition that requires you to go "now." I have never used it. I just ask nicely and explain. On a 20 hour flight when everyone woke up for meal service they all wanted to change their clothes and brush their teeth. I was in line to poop but it wasn't yet an emergency. I just turned to the line and said "would it be ok if those of us who have to go to the bathroom cut those of you that are brushing your teeth?" Everyone said it was fine.
27 Year old married female law student (last year!!). Diagnosed w/ CD 4 years ago, IBS for over 10 years before that, which was probably the CD. I am sort of lactose intollerant too but can handle anything cultured and do well w/ lactose pills and lactaid. For crohns I am currently on Pentasa 4 pills/4x day and hysociamine prn. I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13. I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium. Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night.  I take xanax prn for situational anxiety (aka no easy bathroom access).

I can assure you if I went to the bathroom first they wouldnt be able to hold their breath long enough to brush their teeth after I was done unless there was a vent window in the jetliners restroom.
Crohns 30 years. Ileostomy for 15 years. Symptom free for 14 years until 8 months ago. Now on Remicade, Flagyl, B-12 injections and iron. Feeling much better!

I would agree if I was sick. At that point it was just a normal "gotta go." Even my normal ones come with urgency but if I'm not sick it is not too smelly. lol.
