Ryanair plans on standing room to accommodate more people on board plane

By Super Admin

New York, Jul 7 (ANI): Irish discount airline Ryanair is said to be making plans for standing rooms on their planes so that they can accommodate more people onboard.

The company's CEO wants Boeing to build a special standing room only jet so that fliers can perch on stools rather than sit in chairs, a method Ryanair thinks could get 30 percent more customers on their planes.

"Passengers wouldn't be fully standing, they would have something like a stool to lean on or to sit on," the New York Daily News quoted Stephen McNamara, a Ryanair spokesman as saying.

He said that the plan would "completely adhere to safety procedures", as the stools would have lap belts to keep you attached, with the standing room tickets costing less than seats.

The idea came from the Chinese airline Spring, which is developing a similar plan.

Ryanair flies to destinations throughout Europe and a few in Northern Africa. (ANI)
