Ryanair's specifications on its Boeings do away with standard touches, with no business-class seating and no tray tables on the backs of seats, permitting tighter spacing of passengers.
O'Leary said one key advantage of the 737 was the ability to fit 189 passengers on board, but he'd love to add 10 more seats — something that would require removing the two rear toilets, a move regulators would be unlikely to permit.
O'Leary repeated his headline-seeking proposal, originally made three years ago, to charge for use of the one remaining front toilet. He quipped that Ryanair would donate those profits to "prostate cancer and incontinence research."
