|To pee or not to pee, Ryanair is the question|

Irish low cost airline Ryanair said that its planes will fly even if there is no toilet available on board the aircraft.
Mirror disclosed an internal Ryanair memo saying "In the rare event there is a technical problem with all toilets on board, permission may be granted for the flight to depart with no serviceable toilets. Any passenger not wishing to travel can apply for a refund."
This means that someone on a flight from London Stansted to Rhodes may have to endure 4 hours without going to a toilet.
The airline, which in 2009 wanted to charge passengers £1/€1 to use the toilets, instructed their staff to make a pre-boarding announcement informing the passengers of the situation and offering to refund those who do not want to take the flight.
According to Mirror, The Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA) said: "There is no legal requirement for planes to have functioning toilets, but it could be a pretty unpleasant experience and might be a step too far in the 'no frills' concept."
