Ryanair Turns Pay Toilets into Cash Prizes

Ryanair has finally announced that their brainstorming ideas for fleecing their travelers has come to an constipated full-stop. Now, they are offering the public some chances at making a quick 1,000 BP for their aid in getting into the stream of things. Giving away money does seem to be counter-intuitive. Let us just hope that the currency awarded are pounds sterling that are still in circulation today. If you give this a try, send it to me also to be included here. Sure, you can wait a few days; we won’t steal your thunder.

Press Release:

Passengers to Suggest Next Discretionary Charge

€1,000 CASH PRIZE FOR BEST SUGGESTION
Submit your ideas by email to competition@ryanair.com
Ryanair, Europe’s largest low fares airline, today (12th Mar) invited passengers to suggest the airline’s next ancillary revenue idea after Chief Executive, Michael O’Leary, confirmed that the company is examining the possibility of passengers paying to use the on board toilets in a drive to keep costs down and lower Ryanair’s guaranteed lowest fares even further.
This Europe wide competition invites passengers to submit their most ingenious, wacky and creative ideas to Ryanair via the www.ryanair.com website to be in with a chance of winning a €1,000 cash prize.
Launching the competition, Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said;
“Ryanair is Europe’s largest low fares airline and we plan to continue to reduce costs and fares by stimulating ancillary revenues. We have always provided passengers with choice, if you don’t want to pay for food – don’t buy it, if you don’t want to pay checked in bag charges – don’t bring checked in bags, if you don’t want to pay handling charges – then just use Visa Electron entirely free of charge.
Since we confirmed that we are considering a toilet charge we have received a huge number of ancillary revenue suggestions from passengers and we want more. We are asking passengers to submit their ideas with the most creative winning €1,000 cash. Some of the best suggests to date are:
· Charging for toilet paper – with O’Leary’s face on it,
· Charging €2.50 to read the safety cards,
· Charging €1 to use oxygen masks,
· Charging €25 to use the emergency exit,
· Charging €50 for bikini clad Cabin Crew.

Passengers can submit their ideas by email to competition@ryanair.com to enter their idea before the 30th March 2009. The winning idea will be chosen by Ryanair and our decision will be final.”
