new charges are likely be a drop in the ocean

A budget airline is considering charging for the use of the toilets on its flights.

Ryanair has said that it may introduce a £1 charge for using the in-flight toilets. They say this will be a standing charge and it will be £2 if you want to be seated. More expensive flights are expected to remain bog standard.

However some food on the altered flights is now expected to be free. Snacks such as fig rolls, senna pod tarts and cod liver oil will now all be free of charge, as will one-litre soft drinks and all tea and coffee.

The airline has said that although £1 will be the cost for someone to use the toilet, a £20 fee will be charged for a couple.

The Air Steward's Association said today that they were concerned about the knock-on effects of the charge, including the possibility of incorrect use of travel sickness bags.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
