    Yikes!

    Probably not too bad on a short hop, but longer flights?

    It predates most of our members, but Disneyland once had coin-operated toilets. Local sanitation required that at least one stall in each restroom be free of charge. To get around it, someone would use a coin-operated stall, then hold the door open for the next person in line. Disney eventually got the message about 10 years or so into operation of Disneyland and eliminated the charge.

    I think they are possibly shoting themselfs in the foot here. I mean what else are they going to start charging for, the use of a life jacket if the plane were to crash

    Well if I'm travelling to a foreign country I'm unlikely to have a pound with me - will these toilets accept euros?

    And it's only 20p at Victoria station.

    And I RARELY have change with me, since you can't take it through security in your pockets.

    Well it's a pound to use the toilet in Harrods but they are all marble and china and have nice smelly stuff you can spray around and ladies who hand you towels and stuff.

    If Ryanair provide that kind of service I'll pay a pound for it.

    same with me!

    ...but this is ryanair. It's an awful pennypinching airline that charge for almost everything. They were the ones that started charging for wheelchair assistance and were exposed on a documentary not allowing passengers to have a drink of water despite being stuck on the runway for over an hour with no aircon.

    Of course the flip side which ought not be forgotten is that when folks pay 1 for their whole flight, it shouldn't come as any surprise when the airline tries to get some money back by charging for absolutely everything

    just what i was thinking about my niece with Crohns actually - she carries a little card saying that she has a non infectious illness and MUST be allowed to use the loo....wonder how Ryanair would deal with that!

    I honestly do not remember having to pay a pound to use the toilet in Harrods.

    Third floor - Harrods cardholder toilets. Non cardholders can pay 1 to use them and get all the sprays and towels and fancy stuff.
