I think any reasonable person would ask themselves "would I really want to fly with this airline?" Look here

First pay toilets, now this. Take offs and landings would be a hoot.

I can't imagine the FAA approving it for U.S. flights. But then again, I am beginning to believe anything can happen these days.

"This is the captain. I've turned the seatbelt light back on because of some turbulence up ahead. Those of you seated please buckle up. Those of you standing please put your helmets on."

Remember the ride at the fair where it was a big circle and you stood up in these semi-half cages. You had a strap across your waist. Then it would start spinning and lifting and then the bottom would fall out. I loved that ride !

I thought SRO flying was only in the Comoros Islands - Ryanair is not the first! Pay toilets is an idea that has got to go!!!! The next proposal is likely to be a "Fly It Yourself" fare!!!!!

Yeah. If you have an airline transport pilot certificate and are checked out on type you get 50% off if you fly the first leg in the right seat.

Not necessary, the aircraft will be a remotely piloted vechicle (RPV) . Beverages will be served from a self-service cart and passengers will be asked to "pay as they go"- There will be an ATM installed inside what used to be the cockpit but now there will be room for 25 standees!

Well, I don't really know why they're looking for more passengers to store on a plane ... they'd better use seats they've already got.

I mean, monday July 6th I was on a Ryan Air flight. I entered the plane (Boeing 737 / 800 series) as third or fourth passenger, although I hadn't any priority access.

Someone told me long ago that tail is safer: so I took place in the last row, left side, window seat.
I tried the seat belt ... no way, it was missing.
The right half was ok, but the left had been cut.
Maybe an emergency ... who knows ?
And, mainly, who knows WHEN that happened ?

So I moved to the center seat ... and stretched my legs as I never did on RA aircrafts.
