Ryanair to charge to use the toilet

RyanairPay to pee?  Ryanair may begin charging for passengers to use the toilet, which amounts to One pound or $1.43 just to use the bathroom. Michael O'Leary Ryanair's CEO commented on BBC television and also said "One thing we have looked at in the past and are looking at again is the possibility of maybe putting a coin slot on the toilet door."

Though Mr. O'Leary was speaking off the cuff and just amounts to thinking out loud.

This seems to be a trend in most airlines around the world, charging for all those extras.

I would not conceder the toilet as an extra, like a bag of peanuts? Many airlines are charging for carry on bags, purses and laptops. I do not understand why not include it in the ticket price?

Mr. O'Leary, later stated that, "...a separate toilet fee would lower ticket costs and make flying, somehow, easier for all."
