    Default Ryanair may charge for toilet use on planes

    Ryanair may charge for toilet use on planes

    LONDON (Reuters) Irish carrier Ryanair, Europe's largest budget airline, might start charging passengers for using the toilet while flying, chief executive Michael O'Leary said on Friday.
    "One thing we have looked at in the past and are looking at again is the possibility of maybe putting a coin slot on the toilet door so that people might actually have to spend a pound to spend a penny in future," he told BBC television.
    He said this would not inconvenience passengers travelling without cash. "I don't think there is anybody in history that has got on board a Ryanair aircraft with less than a pound."
    O'Leary has a reputation as a cost cutter, expanding Ryanair by offering low headline fares and charging extra for items such as additional luggage.
    Last week, Ryanair announced it was to shut all check-in desks at airports and have passengers check in online instead.
    "We're all about finding ways of raising discretionary revenue so we can keep lowering the cost of air travel," he said.

    I'd hold it in and then piss on the seat right before leaving.

    Oh, really? What about flights originating from outside the UK? Dumbass.

    Give me a break.

    I'm with you. Maybe they need an organized protest of a planeful of people doing this to see how stupid it is.

    That's going to be one seriously pissy-smelling airplane because no way will most people pay to use the toilet.

    This is seriously the dumbest thing I've heard in awhile. I refuse to fly Ryanair anyway, simply because after a flight you feel like you've been sitting on a plank for a few hours. Sooo uncomfortable.

    Maybe they can just cut holes into the seats and whichever flight attendant with the least seniority gets put on 'shit detail' when the passengers deboard.

    He's never travelled with me. I exchange a small amount of cash, and the rest of my spending goes on credit cards. I have often left a country with absolutely none of their currency in my pocket

    And he obviously doesn't know his clients. The choice between the toilet and a beer is not going to be a difficult one for them.

    I know I wouldn't. They would be replacing seats.

    Please, you already cant get into the bathroom on the damn plane. We were going to Colorado from NY last month. While on the plane, my 6 year old comes down with the stomach virus that's been circulating at her school. The kid is vomiting all over the seat and traytable. I take her up to the head at the front of the plane with my hand across her mouth to keep the remaining puke in. Stewardess says, you cant use the bathroom, the captain is out of the cockpit taking a break so this area is closed. I respond with either let me in or she's going to hurl all over first class. She gives me the fish eye. I say sorry folks, to first class. They're all saying to stewardess, you better let her go in. I didn't pay for first class to be thrown up on. Finally, she relents. This is the same woman who then hands me the cleaning supplies to clear up the vomit at our seats. Honestly, the only thing they're useful for is handing out little bottles of alcohol.

    Order a can of pop. Drink said pop. When the flight attendant strolls around with the garbage bag, keep your can. Pee in it before getting off. Stuff into pocket of seat in front of you. Exit plane.

    They've already cut the baggage allowance to 20lb of hand luggage only.... he's going to get a shock when people stop flying on his shitty (literally) little planes...

    Ryan Air blows and their seats are like 2x4's. I went with them once and that was enough for me.
