Ryanair, Europeâ€™s largest low fares airline, has invited passengers to suggest the airlineâ€™s next ancillary revenue idea after Chief Executive, Michael Oâ€™Leary, confirmed that the company is examining the possibility of passengers paying to use the on board toilets in a drive to keep costs down and lower Ryanairâ€™s guaranteed lowest fares even further.
This Europe wide competition invites passengers to submit their most ingenious, wacky and creative ideas to Ryanair via the www.ryanair.com website to be in with a chance of winning a â‚¬1,000 cash prize.
Launching the competition, Ryanairâ€™s Stephen McNamara said;
â€œRyanair is Europeâ€™s largest low fares airline and we plan to continue to reduce costs and fares by stimulating ancillary revenues. We have always provided passengers with choice, if you donâ€™t want to pay for food â€“ donâ€™t buy it, if you donâ€™t want to pay checked in bag charges â€“ donâ€™t bring checked in bags, if you donâ€™t want to pay handling charges â€“ then just use Visa Electron entirelyÂ free of charge.
Since we confirmed that we are considering a toilet charge 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 â‚¬1,000 cash. Some of the best suggests to date are:
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Charging for toilet paper â€“ with Oâ€™Learyâ€™s face on it,
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Charging â‚¬2.50 to read the safety cards,
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Charging â‚¬1 to use oxygen masks,
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Charging â‚¬25 to use the emergency exit,
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Charging â‚¬50 for bikini clad Cabin Crew.
