ryanairRyanair, the leading European low-cost airline, is considering charging passengers to use the toilets on board its aircraft.

Michael O’Leary, chief executive of the Irish carrier, said, “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.”

Mr O’Leary said that Ryanair had a number of other measures which the company was considering introducing, including charging passengers a pound for every 50 cubic centimetres of air breathed. He said there would be strict penalties for anyone taking more than their fair share and that they would be particularly hard on asthmatics who had been cheating other passengers for years.

The chief executive said that they also intended to start weighing passengers as well as their luggage, rejecting calls from lardy arses that this was unfair. They were also investigating proposals to charge people for not dying, saying that this was a bonus, particularly on Ryanair flights, that had previously gone unappreciated.
