Pay toilets on airplanes?

This has to be the worst idea ever.

Ryanair mulls charge for toilets

Irish budget airline Ryanair has said it is considering charging passengers for using the toilet while flying.

Chief executive Michael O'Leary told the BBC that the Dublin-based carrier was looking at maybe installing a "coin slot on the toilet door".


I don't particularly object to public pay toilets. There are cases in which it makes sense to give a paying customer a chit for the restroom, but charge people who aren't customers but want to use the facilities -- a restaurant in a train station, for example. But it's ridiculous on an airplane.
