In town for Jayme Closs story, CBS This Morning's Gayle King stops to praise MSP Airport bathrooms

The TV host was impressed by the women's facilities at the Twin Cities airport.
Publish date:

Minneapolis-St. Paul International regularly scores highly when it comes to ranking the nation's best airports, and it now has a new celebrity admirer.

Gayle King, the co-host of "CBS This Morning," took the time to post a video to her Instagram after being wowed by the quality of the women's bathrooms at MSP.

"And the award for best bathroom goes to Minneapolis-St. Paul," she says, before giving her 522,000 Instagram followers an impromptu tour of the facilities, and even getting a fellow bathroom user to sing its praises.

Reasons for the praise include its size, cubicle doors that open outwards, and the space in the cubicle for disabled users.

"Minneapolis-St. Paul, wow, wow wow wow, you get an A, two thumbs up!"

She had flown into the Twin Cities before heading over to Wisconsin to interview those involved in the Jayme Closs case, which was broadcast on Monday morning.

MSP Airport was named the Best Airport in North America among terminals that serve 25-40 million passengers annual in both 2016 and 2017 by the Airports Council International.

And in 2016, the newly-upgraded MSP bathrooms took the top prize in the 15th annual America's Best Restroom Contest, as reported by USA Today.
