Would you stand for this ?

Ryanair could ask passengers to stand during flights. The airline is looking into the possibility of carrying more passengers on its planes.

Ryanair passengers would sit on stools with seatbelts around their waists, according to The Daily Mail. The airline's chief executive, Michael O'Leary, is believed to have already held discussions with plane manufacturer Boeing.

If Ryanair's plans to make some passengers stand are approved by the Irish Aviation Authority, the carrier will either refurbish its existing fleet of aircraft or order new planes. Ryanair estimated that the move would enable it to carry 30 per cent more passengers on its planes.

A spokesman for the airline, Stephen McNamara, said: "It would be vertical seating more akin to a stool and the person would still be strapped in. The seating would completely adhere to safety procedures."

Passengers would be charged less if the idea goes ahead. The scheme was inspired by the Chinese airline Spring, who recently submitted similar plans.

It's not April 1st is it :confused:
