Cheap seats

Ryanair is the Irish-owned airline that aims to offer the cheapest possible fares on its flights. However, cheap seats got a new meaning today, when they announced that they are planning on charging passengers approximately a pound to use the lavatories on board.

“We have thought about this in the past, and now we are considering the idea again”, Michael O’Leary, Ryanair’s Director told the BBC.

Always travel with small change

Even though this may cause bother with possibly forgetting it before you go through the metal-detectors in Security, O’Leary doesn’t see this as a problem.

“I don’t think anyone has ever boarded a Ryanair flight with less than a pound on them.”

Cost-cutting

This is just the latest idea in keeping prices low. According to the Norwegian Telegram Bureau (NTB) last week, Ryanair announced their plans to close all of their check-in desks at the airports, forcing passengers to check in on the Internet.

“We are always hunting for new ways of reducing the cost of air-travel”, he said.

Maybe passengers will not see this latest move of theirs as being money down the drain.
