    Stand up on a Ryanair flight?

    STANDING UP ON A PLANE?!?!?

    Looks like the world is going backwards ;) .... First they want you to load your own luggage, then pay to use the toilet, and now you will pay to have the 'luxury' of sitting down on the plane. I doubt the 'free to stand up' offer will last long .... just like the 5 quid flights everyone thought would be the norm ;)

    On the trains down here, your lucky to even GET a seat at all, all for the bargain price of 25 quid a day to go to work and back - The toilets on the train are all closed and now they have shut the free toilet on the platform due to 'repairs' (that never happen) and have turned the only free toilet into a 20p a piss job.

    Progress eh!

    People need to vote with their feet if they don't like it. Personally, people will buy them if they want to save a few quid

    Lets hope competition prevails then. The airlines were dominated for many years by companies like BA bullying other airlines like Virgin.... When it comes to the trains you are completely screwed.

    How long before you get charged for the 'optional' life jacket eh ;)

    No company is gonna offer 'free' flights for long.

    Just like Easyjet and Ryanair did with cheap flights, they will probably do it for as long as it takes to put other people out of business or to stop flying to those locations.... and then 'free' suddenly gets alot more expensive.
