tuppence the pot. Ryanair charges forin-flight potty use.

Low-cost airline Ryanair is looking at the possibility of installing a coin slot on lavatory doors.

Ironically, in a light-hearted survey conducted by Telegraph Travel last November, we asked readers which service they thought no-frills airlines might start charging for in the future.

56 per cent of readers said that a charge for "using the loo" would be the most likely, while 31 per cent chose "reclining seats" and 11 per cent opted for "sick bags".

One Ryanair spokesman, Michael O’Leary, said that Ryanair was determined to make air travel easier and more affordable.
“I don’t think there’s anybody in history gone on board a Ryanair flight with less than a pound,” he added.

Later, Ryanair spokesman Stephen McNamara said: "Michael makes a lot of this stuff up as he goes along and, while this has been discussed internally, there are no immediate plans to introduce it.

"However, this highlights Ryanair's continuing obsession with lowering costs and passing these savings on in the form of lower fares.

The Dublin-based airline has gained a reputation for its high booking fees and ancillary charges.

The carrier charges £30 to check in a bag, £10 to pay for flights with a debit or credit card (excluding Visa Electron), £60 to check in sports or music equipment, £15 for each kilo of excess baggage, £50 to change a flight and £100 to change the name on a ticket.
