Did you know that most of these ideas come from the passengers themselves? It's true. ;)

That would make perfect sense.

I can imagine that someone, after being charged £8 for a cup of coffee, might say....."Next thing they'll be charging us to use the toilet" ......

Add a few chinese whispers, hey presto = Ryanair myth?

If I remember right, it's in the magazine they hand out during the flight. There's a prize if an idea is chosen.
I'm on a flight in Sept so I'll check to see if it's still going. If it is, I'm gonna put down the idea of bunk-beds.

For anyone who's interested, there's actually a copy of the "Pinocchio" advert and a bit more background to the ongoing Ryan Air and Easy Jet squabbles here

Not the most balanced of articles calling O'Leary a baboon and a leprechaun - though I do agree with "media slut". ;)

Why is it that your average low budget traveller will wait in a queue for hours to get on a filthy third world country bus and travel for 3 days on it doing over 1,000 miles - standing for 1/2 the journey, squashed between a blocked up toilet and two tethered goats and won't say a word to anyone about the discomfort experienced, yet that very same person will spend £3 on a flight with Ryanair to Ireland that takes 30 minutes, departs on time, arrives 5 minutes early, but because they charged the same price of the ticket for a can of pop - the whole airline stinks?

There must be an invisible border - on one side, the intrepid traveler, all windswept and interesting taking it all in their stride - but back to a perceived civilization, turns into the passenger from hell that sulks cos the stewardess didn't smile right when she served them their latte. Well that's my theory.

edit: I'd like to see is Michael O'Leary on an Easyjet flight touting for business.
