MOSCOW, March 12 (RIA Novosti) - The largest low-cost
airline in Europe, Ireland's Ryanair, said on Thursday it
wanted ideas from the public on what it could charge passengers
for after rejecting charges for in-flight toilet use.
Ryanair chief executive Michael O'Leary had earlier
suggested the company examine the possibility of passengers
paying to use the on board toilets, a proposal that has since
been ruled out and dismissed as a cheap publicity stunt.
"We have received a huge number of ancillary revenue
suggestions from passengers and we want more. We are asking
passengers to submit their ideas with the most creative winning
?1,000 cash," the company's website reads.
The company said that suggestions received so far included
charging for toilet paper with the CEO's picture on it, as well
as payments for reading the in-flight safety cards and using
oxygen masks and emergency exits. There is also a suggested ?50
charge so that the cabin crew wears bikinis during the flight.
