Pay-Per-Pee - Ryanair


Ryanair boss, Michael O'Leary, insisted today that it will cost passengers a pound to spend a penny as he confirmed plans to charge for toilets on his aeroplanes within two years.

The chief executive of Europe's largest budget carrier said the airline would also generate extra revenues by removing two out of the three toilets on its Boeing 737-800 jets and filling the space with up to six seats.


Cory Doctrow of Boing Boing wonders if Ryanair would want to charge the passengers a Breathing Fee as well (Link).

A somewhat disturbing comment for Michael O'Leary:

Asked if he would be interested in charging £5 a toilet visit in order to eliminate the need for the loo altogether, he said: "If someone wanted to pay £5 to go to the toilet I would carry them myself. I would wipe their bums for a fiver."

I know these are hard times.. but - come on!
