Ryanair, an Irish airline, is Europe’s largest discount airline. It boasts that it has cut airfare by 10% while its competitors have continually hiked prices. This is good news for its passengers. That is, if they don’t have any bladder issues.
In its continual strive to provide the cheapest tickets, Ryanair has been searching ways to cut down on spending and to increase their profits. Recently, they announced that passengers can no longer check in at the counter. They must do so on-line. Hope their computers work. Wouldn’t want a repeat of a few years back when some people had to travel on the toilet. Also, be extra careful about what you bring with you, because you might be charged for extra luggage. This may include your handbag. And, please, don’t expect any fancy meals.
But the icing on the cake is the idea that they may start charging for toilet use. If they decide to do this, they will be the first airline to do so. Mr. O’Leary, the company’s CEO, feels this would not inconvenience passengers. He plans to charge only 1 GBP, which, in his opinion, everyone carries with them. But, you unfortunate souls with overactive bladder or enlarged prostates might need to carry a few more with you. Either that or spend money on a urinal or some adult diapers.
