Ryanair's toilet fee confirmed
London, UK - O'Leary was not joking on the matter...
(WAPA) - Michael O'Leary, CEO of the Irish airline, was not joking at all when some weeks ago he talked about his intention to charge passengers to use the on-board toilets. Even if the voice was denied by a spokesman some days later, yesterday in a press conference in Madrid O'Leary confirmed the project: using the toilets on the carrier's planes will cost £1 (€ 1,10).
He added that: "Boeing still hasn't built a toilet door that would require coins to be opened, but I think it is a logical evolution: if you use the toilet in a railway station in London, you pay. I see no reason why passengers on a plane should not pay as well". Furthermore, he continued, this will make people use the toilets only if they really need them; anyway, passengers can always go to bathroom in the airport before getting on board "Avoiding to bother their fellow travellers".
