Ryanair consider charging for using onboard toilets
July 1st, 2010 by elisa

The controversial peak season luggage fees on Ryanair flights start today. The price of checking in a bag has now risen to £20 from the previous £15 and will remain throughout the whole of July and August.

If passengers would like larger weight allowance then they can purchase an extra 5kg for £5 which will total the cost to £25 each way for luggage weighing up to 20kg. To make matters worse, passengers who forget to check in online will be charged an extra £40 per 15kg bag or £50 per 20kg bag checked in at the airport.

These price hikes were discussed in an earlier blog when the news first broke in April, I also included a few handy tips to help to reduce unnecessary charges, courtesy of moneysavingexpert, click here to see this blog.

Paying for so many varying factors to fly is confusing enough at the moment (for most airlines), but Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary might just take the biscuit when he tells TV viewers this evening that he is still considering charging passengers to use onboard toilets and he is exploring the possibility of ‘standing seats’ on aircraft.

Speaking on ‘Beat the Budget Airlines’, to be shown on ITV at 7.30pm, O’Leary said safety tests of the £4 to £8 seats have been scheduled for next year.

What are your views on the myriad of possible charges and this new announcement? Do you find it a good way to save money by being able to choose exactly what you need to pay for if on a budget? Or is this too complicated and confusing, making booking flights more stressful than they need to be?
