Ryanair's Latest Idea: In-Flight Porn
But don't worry ... you'd watch it on your phone, which is so much more private!

(Newser) – "Ryanair" and "conservative" aren't two words you typically see in the same sentence, so the airline's latest harebrained idea shouldn't come as too much of a surprise: in-flight porn. Yep, Ryanair honcho Michael O'Leary would like to bring the steamy pay-per-view hotel room experience to his aircraft. But don't fret, he 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." Way better, right? He envisions a Ryanair app that fliers could log on to via iPad or smartphone.

Once connected, they could gamble, play games, or view X-rated cinema. "Hotels around the world have it, so why wouldn't we?" Why not, indeed. A rep for the airline notes that "nothing has been decided as yet." The Sun adds that if approved, it would take at least a year to bring the idea to life.

A great idea: Passengers can come and go at the same time.

Now we see why corporate CEO's make such huge bonuses, because they are so much smarter than us. What a stupid idea. People don't just passively watch porn. And who want's to sit that close to someone watching porn on their phone. Totally stupid.
