It had to happen—Pay for Pee on a discount airline

An airline will begin charging about $1.30 for bathroom use, according to Ryanair Goes Forth with Pay-Per-Pee System (Vanity Fair, 4/8/2010). It turns out that this is not an American airline, but an Irish discount airline.
American airlines are no slouches at penny-pinching, of course. Spirit Airlines has recently announced it will charge $45 for use of the overhead storage bins.
In the case of Ryanair, they will reportedly remove all but one toilet on the airliner and install a coin-operated lock for access to it.
