Airline CEO Wants To Get Rid of Plane Seatbelts


Euro airline Ryanair’s CEO  Michael O’Leary has a dream.  A dream of selling standing-room-only tickets on his airline.  How can he make that come true!?  Get rid of the seat belts.  As O’Leary says “If there ever was a crash on an aircraft, God forbid, a seat belt won’t save you.”  Losing the seat belts is a new idea in the airline industry, but then so is an airline CEO talking casually about crashes.

This is from Ryanair, the company that wanted to put pay toilets on their planes.  If a retarded idea comes out of the airline industry, it'll usually be from them.

You ever experience some real bad turbulence? You can fly right out of your seat and smack your head into the overhead bin or another Passenger. This guy is the CEO? Just asking.

First class, business class, expendable class. Expendable class is up front (but boards last).

"Excuse me sir, we need you to hold this seat belt extension. Just because we don't have seat belts anymore, doesn't mean you still don't deserve to be embarrassed "

I would like to know how many people actually were saved by belts on planes.  I'm guessing maybe a couple at best. this opens up the option for a bar in every plane. they would quadruple their drink sales if you did not have to wait for the cart to come around. (when stewardesses existed them coming to yo was nice, now it's a hassle)  as for standing room only not my style..

 @treekiller I was thinking that you could order from your seat and then the savages in the standing room only section could pass your drink along.
