Passengers to Suggest Next Discretionary Charge
â‚¬1,000 CASH PRIZE FOR BEST SUGGESTION
Ryanair, Europeâ€™s largest low fares airline, today (12th Mar) invited passengers to suggest the airlineâ€™s next ancillary revenue idea after Chief Executive, Michael Oâ€™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 Ryanairâ€™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 â‚¬1,000 cash prize.
Launching the competition, Ryanairâ€™s Stephen McNamara said;
â€œRyanair is Europeâ€™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 donâ€™t want to pay for food â€“ donâ€™t buy it, if you donâ€™t want to pay checked in bag charges â€“ donâ€™t bring checked in bags, if you donâ€™t want to pay handling charges â€“ 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 â‚¬1,000 cash. Some of the best suggests to date are:
Â· Charging for toilet paper â€“ with Oâ€™Learyâ€™s face on it,
Â· Charging â‚¬2.50 to read the safety cards,
Â· Charging â‚¬1 to use oxygen masks,
Â· Charging â‚¬25 to use the emergency exit,
Â· Charging â‚¬50 for bikini clad Cabin Crew.
Passengers can submit their ideas by email to firstname.lastname@example.org to enter their idea before the 30th March 2009. The winning idea will be chosen by Ryanair and our decision will be final.â€
Desde luego las ideas hasta ahora aportadas son de lo más ingeniosas, si no fuera porque mucho me temo que los de la compañía aérea lo mismo se las toma en serio… a este paso ya me veo llevándome mi propio asiento para ahorrarme costes o incluso yendo de pie como en los autobuses… XD.
