Brianair, the cheap airline, is considering further cost-cutting measures to keep their business running quite literally on a shoestring budget.
One of the measures being considered is to give passengers an oxygen tank each and to charge them for how much they use at the end of the flight. Customers would be rewarded for holding their breath. This would not only earn money for the airline, but would also save money because the cabin would not need to be supplied with oxygen.
This follows yesterday's news that Brianair are considering charging for use of the toilets on board. A spokesman has since denied that, and said, "Actually all the toilets are to be removed from Brianair so we can fit more cattle, I mean more passengers on board. Passengers will have to buy a nappy and an oxygen tank each before they go on board, which will cost about £100. Of course we maintain our commitment of being able to fly anywhere in the world for £1."
In another plan to save on fuel, Brianair are constructing a giant catapult at Stansted airport.
