Ryanair introduce ‘priority exit’ bomb doors
Cost-cutting airline Ryanair is set to introduce a new ‘priority exit’ service on their flights via a set of bomb doors. For a £10 fee, passengers will soon be able to elect to leave the plane up to an hour before regular passengers by utilising a ‘sudden loss of floor’ system.
‘Some people are in a hurry and don’t want the hassle of queuing to get off the plane, or all the formalities of baggage collection and landing to slow things down,’ said Ryanair chairman Michael O’Leary, who is confident the new service will prove a hit with customers who survive.
Consumer watchdogs have attacked the charges however, with a spokesman claiming: ‘Although £10 sounds reasonable, the small print states that a parachute is £250 extra, and I hardly feel a parachute should be classed as an extra.’Click to send this story to a friend
