Ryanair, the Budget airline that likes nothing better than thinking up new and cunning ways in which to cut costs, which incidentally, usually result in making your journey just a little bit more pants!
Officials from Europe’s biggest airline from want to remove two or three of its lavatories and replace them with up to six extra seats.
Under the plans up to 200 passengers and six crew would be forced to share bathroom facilities during a flight, leading to long queues, or worse, mid-air accidents. The company said ticket prices would fall by about £2 from a typical £40 ticket.
Michael O’Leary, the airline’s controversial chief executive, who is famous for his uncompromising approach to cost-cutting, defended the plans, saying all bathroom facilities were “very rarely” all used.
But critics said they were a “step too far” in its crude bid to cut costs and increase revenues. It is the latest cost-cutting measures announced by the airline.
