Ryanair: One toilet per plane means messing in the aisles

13 October 2011

Bitterwallet - Ryanair new plane liveryDid you hear about Gerard Depardieu taking a leak in the aisle of an aeroplane? A real Gaul Bladder, eh? Haw haw... uh... er. Anyway, this might be a common occurrence on Ryanair flights as they plan to remove toilets from flights.

The plans, headed up by oxygen thieving Michael O'Leary, would see 200 passengers and six crew being forced to use the same toilet. Hello long queues and soiling yourself!

And why? So we can save £2 on a typical £40 ticket.

Michael O’Leary says bathroom facilities were “very rarely” all used. This comes on the back of the company announcing that they won't be charging you to do your business.

O’Leary said the move would “fundamentally lower air fares by about five per cent for all passengers”. “We’re trying to push Boeing to recertify the aircraft for six more seats, particularly for short-haul flights.”

“We very rarely use all three toilets on board our aircraft anyway.”

But a spokesman for the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA) criticised the plans, saying: “We all know how inconvenient it can be if a toilet on a plane is out of order or the annoyance of queuing if someone has air sickness in one of the cubicles.”

“This move could be a step too far in Ryanair’s ongoing mission to provide a totally no-frills service.”

    Oh come on bitterwallet... You should know better by now... Your just playing the sky marshalls game the way he wants you to. He says something outrageous, you report on it, he gets headlines, it never happens. Yawn.

    Errr don't jump to conclusions Mark, whilst it's yet more publicity for Ryanair, just look what the Dutch are up to. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-15220297 Personally I wouldn't pay a quid to piss in a poke, I'd just do it in the aisle, but perhaps some would pay a quid not to.
