Ryanair's much-maligned plan to charge passengers to use the toilet on their flights has been completely misunderstood, says the cheapy airline's CEO. In fact, he says he's willing to give all the money from the pay toilets to charity to prove his point.
Ryanair chief executive Michael O'Leary made his case this morning at a press conference in Brussels, saying that people are misunderstanding his reasoning for adding pay toilets. It's not, he says, to make money from captive cross-legged customers, but "to change peoples' behaviour," and to squeeze in six more additional seats.
The ability to evacuate one's bodily waste is not a behaviour, it's a natural requirement. The man is an idiot for suggesting it, and a bigger idiot for pursuing it.
