Ryanair Asks Staff to Keep their Weight Down with Incentive to Appear in Airline Calendar

In an effort to cut fuel costs by keeping weight down on their aircraft, Ryanair has asked staff to slim down, with the incentive that if they do, they will be featured in the airline's calendar.  This move is controversial and airline spokesperson, Stephen McNamara, said that the staff has been asked to consider their weight.  The airline has also decided to serve less ice in drinks and reduce the size of their inflight magazine.

McNamara said they even considered removing the armrests, but decided against it.  With the reduction of the size of the inflight magazine, the airline will also see significant savings, to the tune of £400,000 in annual printing costs.  Ryanair is known for considering controversial ideas to cut costs, one of which was to remove the regular seating and offer passengers standing room seating instead.  However, this idea was scrapped when a regulator would not allow them to perform test flights.

The above article is a summary.  Please see the source article at Google News.
