Many airlines are trying to eliminate those extra fees, but now one airline may start charging a fee to eliminate!
Ryanair, Europe's biggest discount airline, may start charging to use the restroom while flying! That comes straight from Ryanair 's CEO Michael O'Leary on a BBC morning show. O'Leary says the airline is tossing the idea around of putting a coin slot on the bathroom door as a means of raising quote "discretionary revenue." Because, you know, charging for food, drinks and extra baggage isn't enough. Though, if they're going to start charging to use the bathroom, people might stop buying drinks on board!
An airline spokesman says that O'Leary makes a lot of this stuff up as he goes along and while yes, the idea was discussed, there is no immediate plan to make it happen.
