A new low from Ryanair and the Power of the State

So, Ryanair is thinking of charging people to use the toilets on its planes. The depths to which it will sink should have long ceased to amaze us, but I’m still quite shocked. The question is, faced with the power of a multinational and its determination to wrack every last drop of profit out of its consumers, is there anything we can do? It seems to me that this is a health and safety issue, and that the state – or the EU – should regulate to ensure that this is impossible. Ryanair needs its wings clipped, so to speak.

    Good God. Charging people to spend a penny.
    Ryanair’ll be demanding people pay to breathe the air in the planes next!

    I’m sure the plans are in a filing cabinet in o’Leary’s office. I have to say though that watching him on BBC news there was a smirk on his face as he said it, so this may well have been a big publicity stunt.

    What a douchebag O’Leary is.
