Ryanair to sell £5 tickets for standing-room only flights -- Michael O'Leary, the airline's chief executive, will set out proposals today that include charging customers to use the loo. A standing area with "vertical seats" will be introduced at the back of its fleet of 250 planes. He said that charging customers £1 to make use of facilities would encourage travelers on one hour flights to use lavatories at the airport instead of on the aircraft.
