MADRID (AFP) - The head of Irish budget airline Ryanair Tuesday defended his plan to charge passengers to use on-board toilets, saying it would lead to "less passenger inconvenience" during flights.

Or a 15 hour flight from San Francisco to Hong Kong? Or a 19 hour flight from Singapore to Newark N.J. !?!? You telling me you're just going to hold that whiz or duce for anywhere from 7 to 19 hours?
From the bolded part of the article above I doubt too many people are going on long flights with this airline anyway. Sounds more like a commuter plane type company with short flights in Ireland and in or around Europe. All I'm saying is I've had the misfortune of getting seated in the aisle seat of the last row on the airplane once, and I'd have appreciated it if the 543 people who decided they absolutely couldn't hold it for the 2 hours we were airborne would have had to pay a fee for the constant elbows to the back of the head I got whenever one of those retards opened the bathroom door too quickly.
I think the one thing nobody here is taking into account is that this proposal is being made in a place where people are already accustomed to paying for this service in some public locations - it's not like this is a totally foreign concept to them.
