The Irish airline is considering charging its passengers for using the toilet. Hope that doesn't give the cruise lines any ideas.

Imagine the money they would make... Stuff them full of food with 3 5 course meals and 2 buffets a day... then charge them for use of the toilets... You either pay up or explode!

Of course I would be staying out of the swimming pools...

I'd like to see a plane with a lousy bag of cookies, let alone a buffet!
Last year we flew home from San Jaun, and they ran out of everything. You couldn't even buy a snack.

Why would an airline even consider such outlandish idea? So what would they do if some refused to pay? Some one must have made it up.

The Ryanair toilet charge appears to be truly "scratching the bottom " for ways to raise an additional fee! My gal's face got quite "flushed" when she read the post!
