Ryanair considering in-flight porn, report says

Ryanair says it may introduce in-flight porn.

The European no-frills carrier – the same one that’s threatened to introduce pay-per-use lavatories – says such an option could come in a year or so, though it’s hard to gauge just how serious the proposal may be.

Ryanair’s slick-talking CEO Michael O’Leary is known for going public with seemingly outrageous ideas, many (but not all) of which turn out to be apparent publicity stunts.

As for the latest story, it’s one that’s been building across media on both sides of the Atlantic this week.

The Sun, one of London’s splashy tabloids, on Tuesday reported O’Leary is intrigued by the idea of an in-flight app that would let his passengers pay for streaming entertainment options such as games and movies.

And gambling and porn.

Speaking specifically about the possibility of sex scenes being streamed into the cabin, O’Leary tells the Sun:

I’m not talking about having it on screens on the back of seats for everyone to see. It would be on handheld devices. Hotels around the world have it, so why wouldn’t we?

Ryanair says that if it decided to go ahead with the in-flight entertainment app — whether for games or for porn — it would need to evaluate and add a broadband system that could support demand for such an app.

That, the airline says, would take a least a year to get going, according to the Sun.
