Pay to use airline lavatory

Ever heard of Ryan Air? The low cost European airline that sells you a dirt cheap ticket and then charges you for everything.....literally.

Their latest fee is outrageous. They now want to charge you to use their lavatory. If you fly with them on their shorter routes you will have to pay around €1 ($1.50) to use the loo.

According to CNN, "The carrier said it is working with Boeing to develop a coin-operated door release so that when nature calls, passengers would need to deposit the change before being able to use the facilities."

Is there any economic sense in this? Will there really be a return on investment by paying Boeing to come up with a solution, the purchase payable doors from them, and then charge a frickin euro? Are they really going to save money? I'm sure people will avoid using the toilet so now the airline spent all that money on the doors.

Really! Use some common sense and don't go money pinching every day. Sooner or later it's going to bite you in the arse.
