Ryanair to sell standing-room only flights !!

From today's Telegraph...

Michael O'Leary, the airline's chief executive, will set out proposals today that include charging customers to use the loo.
A standing area with "vertical seats" will be introduced at the back of its fleet of 250 planes.
He said that charging customers £1 to make use of facilities would encourage travellers on one hour flights to use lavatories at the airport instead of on the aircraft.
The Irishman said he intended to introduce coin-operated loos and added: "The other change we've been looking at is taking out the last 10 rows of seats so we will have 15 rows of seats and the equivalent of 10 rows of standing area."
A Ryanair spokesman said that Boeing had been consulted over refitting the fleet with "vertical seats" which would allow passengers to be strapped in while standing up, which would cost between £4 and £8 per person.
