Sorry, off topic. Irish budget airline Ryanair has said it is considering charging passengers for using the toilet while flying.

  • Ryanair is making a lot of noise at the moment (both in terms of good and supposedly bad publicity).
    It is clearly a company that is in trouble, or knows trouble is coming.
    Good.

  • Well you can pay on the plane or you can cross your legs and pay anywhere you go in Europe.

    I was at a stag do last weekend where 16 of us put 100s of Euros over the counter at a bar and half way through they put a lady outside the toilet to make us pay. We refused.

  • I am constantly amazed by their ability to get free publicty.You have to hand it to them, they have a free advert running on all the media channels effectively saying Ryan air are the cheapest possible option. That has got to be worth 50X any money they could make by charging to use the toilets. The whole idea of actually doing it it is crazy but there ya go.
    As for the little old ladies sitting outside the toilets in benelux; often they are paid more than they collect but it’s seen as the done thing to have one.

  • If you are that tight to fly with Ryanair, you’d might as well take a “secondary” water bottle up there with you.

  • Indeed. I shall get free of charge by pissing out of the plane’s window into the wind.

  • If they are going to charge for that then they may find it hard to stop someone going elsewhere, which they would not like.

    If this is actually serious they may want to consider providing a toilet token with any drink purchase too, to avoid the conflict on pricing of which the Which correspondent notes.

  • You cant take liquids through passport control anyway so just take an empty bottle and if you need to, fill it on the plane. Most rubbish is left behind on the seats anyway. It’ll provide entertainment for the old lady sat next to you, or get you a free lift to the local town police station as you arrive at the very least.

  • They must be planning to start a service to Egypt ……. getting people accustomed to the money grabbing they can expect when they get there. Have you ever been asked for money for the issue of toilet paper by the sheet in a public loo?…….. I kid you not.
