The airlines don’t take cash … will they take change?
Ryanair may charge passengers to use the toilet
Feb 27, 2009 – (Aviation Industry Group): Irish carrier Ryanair, Europe’s largest budget airline, might start charging passengers for using the toilet while flying, said Michael O’Leary, CEO. “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 a TV news station. Although some may say this is talking cost cutting to extremes, O’Leary remains unrepentant: “I don’t think there is anybody in history that has got on board a Ryanair aircraft with less than a pound.” Last week, Ryanair announced it was to shut all check-in desks at airports and have passengers check in online instead.
