Ryanair considers charging for toilet use

Irish low cost airline Ryanair is considering charging passengers to enter its on-board lavatories.

According to the Civil Aviation Authority, which regulates the aviation industry in the UK, Ryanair would not be breaking the law by introducing the charge.

A spokesman told Times Online: "The situation is that there is no legal requirement for an aircraft to have a toilet onboard, so if an airline does have a toilet they can charge to use it.

But Rochelle Turner, head of research at Which Holiday? Told the BBC: "It seems Ryanair is prepared to plumb any depth to make a fast buck and, once again, is putting profit before the comfort of its customers.

"Charging people to go to the toilet might result in fewer people buying overpriced drinks on board, though - that would serve Ryanair right."

Ryanair's Chief executive Michael O'Leary is known for his extra ordinary ideas in order to obtain free publicity.

The proposals are being discussed avidly by pilots on the industry blog, the Professional Pilots Rumour Network:

Our view?

Well, the saying goes:"Any PR is good PR". We just hope that the air hostesses have small change handy, especially in case of (personal) "emergencies"!

By the way,does the fee includes paper too or does this involve another charge?
