Pay toilets on planes? Looks like it wasn't a publicity stunt

Fares from Washington DC:

    According to  Mutzabaugh's Today in the Sky column on,  quoting the Guardian (UK) newspaper, Ryanair CEO Michael O'Leary plans to start charging £1 (about $1.65 US) to use lavatories on its planes.

    "There may still be some room to question his seriousness on the issue, as O'Leary did not announce a firm start date or other concrete plans," writes Mutzabaugh.  "Still, he did tell reporters the toilet charge is expected to be in place on Ryanair planes within two years. O'Leary adds that he's asking Boeing to look into putting credit-card readers on toilet locks for new jets." Read the column for even more wacky ideas up O'Leary's sleeve.
