(Newser) – 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.

Ryanair's new policy to pay-for-pee is insane. In addition, their removal of two airplane lavatories will create havoc for the millions of people who suffer from shy bladder syndrome (paruresis). As it is, many of us have difficulty in airplane lavatories. Now, with long lines forming to use the ONE available bathroom, it will become impossible.

Save money! Start carrying farm animals to transport in addition to passengers! Why don't they start shoving passengers with farm animals and provide us with cat litter in our seats to share with other animals?
