Ryanair to reportedly move ahead with plans to charge passengers for using the toilet

Ryanair reportedly plans to move ahead with plans to charge passengers for using onboard toilets (The Irish Times, 16-Jan-2010). The EUR1/GBP1 charge would apply only to services of one hour or less, which the carrier believes will allow it to reduce average fares by at least 5%. Ryanair stated it is currently in talks with Boeing to retrofit its B737 aircraft with one coin-operated toilet, with the other two toilets to be removed to provide room for an additional six seats.
