While we are still on the subject of money, I received my Frommer’s newsletter today, chock full of fabulous info, like it always is—but there was one item in particular that really caught my attention.
On the heels of my post the other day about how Spirit Airlines is charging for carry-on bags that don’t fit under the seats comes this, even more absurd update—Ryanair’s announcement that it is making a move to charge £1 (or approximately $1.50) for the use of the toilet on their planes.
Add this to the growing list of other things we already have to pay for on flights—extra baggage (or any baggage at all, in some cases), headphone usage, overhead carry ons, etc.—what will they think of next? Does an action like this by an airline company—which seems to be so desperate and made with complete disregard for its customers—deter you from flying with them, even if their flights might be a bit cheaper? Do you think this type of change shows that they are in no way concerned about customer satisfaction?
Bis bald, friends!
