Ryanair ‘Serious’ About Charging for Bathroom

The AP reports that the head of Dublin-based Ryanair is indeed “serious about making passengers pay for the right to relieve themselves on flights—and is flush with interest in the idea of mounting credit card-operated toilets.” Charging by credit card is logistically easier than charging by coin, as had been suggested earlier, which “wouldn’t work in part because Ryanair operates heavily in areas using both the euro and British pound.”
I’ve said it before about Ryanair (when they had some not-so-nice words about bloggers) and I’ll say it again now: oy vey.
What about someone who needs to go, but doesn’t have a credit card?
As ridiculous as the whole thing is, though, it does make me smile—although I’m sure I wouldn’t be smiling if I had to pay to use a toilet in the sky—and reminds me of this funny Southwest commercial.
