In the latest move to squeeze every possible penny from travelers, a discount airline is close to charging flyers a fee to use the bathroom. Europe's Ryanair is preparing to dun travelers $1.50 for each trip to the loo. The airline is working with Boeing to develop a coin-operated bathroom door release. Officials are also considering removing 2 of 3 bathrooms on some of the planes to squeeze in extra seats, reports CNN. The new push follows an announcement by Spirit airline that it will begin charging up to $45 for carry-on baggage in overhead bins.
