Several customers claim cabin crew said the low-cost airline no longer deemed bathroom soap an ‘essential’ on flights
RYANAIR has been accused of plumbing new depths by ditching soap in jet loos.
Cabin crew are said to have told passengers it is no longer deemed “essential” by the no-frills airline.
Pensioner Alan Woodward, 71, told of his shock at finding there was no soap as he and wife Wendy, 64, flew home from Spain.
He said: “It’s frightening that people are expected to use the toilet and not wash their hands properly.
“One stewardess told me she now brings her own hand soap to work.”
Alan, of Milton, Oxfordshire, said the plane from Alicante last Friday was a new Boeing 737-800.
He blasted what he said was the latest example of Ryanair’s cost-cutting, which comes after boss Michael O’Leary threatened to charge passengers for using toilets.
Alan, an ex-British Airways cabin crew chief, said: “If it was a restaurant or a cafe, it would be shut down.”
Other passengers vented fury online. Ian Harman tweeted after a flight from Bratislava in Slovakia: “No soap in the toilets. Disgusting.”
Kay Leedham-Green said a stewardess confirmed to her: “We no longer stock the toilets with soap.” Mike Hills branded it a “new low”.
Ryanair called the claims “nonsense” and said: “All our aircraft carry soap, which is replenished as required.”
