Ryanair ‘standing room only’ plans

Ryanair is in talks with Boeing over how to redesign plane seating to have ‘standing’ stools.

People would be strapped in for takeoff and landing but could then wander around the plane during the flight.

It’s all about cutting costs and packing more people into a plane to boost profits.

Apparently extra traditional seating can’t be created as there’s no room, so now it’s a case of looking into ‘vertical seating’.

So, Ryanair strikes again – not content with plans for £1 toilet charges or making all passengers check in online, it now wants us to stand on flights!

It seems for chief executive Michael O’Leary it really is all about making profits. Whilst I can understand this to a level, is this latest proposal a step too far?

Mind you if you can save money on flight tickets, is it worth it?
