I have never flown with the budget airline Ryanair before. I have never particularly wanted to. I find Easyjet, which is pretty much the same airline as far as I'm concerned, bad enough. Not being assigned a seat at check in is IMMENSELY annoying for one thing.
But I read this article today and it REALLY took the cake . . .
Seriously, are they MENTAL??? "Bar stools" instead of proper seats? What the fuck???
Not remotely safe, surely?
I read another article where the argument for it was that people stand up on public transport all the time.
Er, yes, we realise that . . . BUT ON PUBLIC TRANSPORT THAT DOESN'T TAKE OFF, LAND, AND FLY THOUSANDS OF FEET IN THE AIR!!!!
Frankly, the very idea of this terrifies me to the core. Aeroplane seats can be bumpy enough as it is. But taking off for a flight perched on a BAR STOOL??? Oh yes, I can picture the sore arses now . . .
Does anyone think this is a good idea, or is this cost-cutting one step too far???
