Boss Of Ryanair Says Seat Belts On Planes Are Useless

We’ve all heard that seat belts save lives. There is proof that if you wear your seat belt in your car your odds of making it through a car crash are greater than if you don’t. What about seat belts on planes or trains?

I watched the movie “Alive” and it seemed to me that it didn’t matter who had on a seat belt, they were going hundreds of miles an hour and they were in the mountains. No one was safe.

Now comes word that the boss of Ryanair says he wants to start selling seats that are standing room in the back for holiday travel. He says he would install hand rails like buses.

In fact, Michael O’Leary the chief executive of budget airline Ryanair, dismissed the notion seat belts were essential, saying to Telegraph

“If there ever was a crash on an aircraft, God forbid, a seatbelt won’t save you.”

“You don’t need a seatbelt on the London Underground. You don’t need a seatbelt on trains which are travelling at 120mph and if they crash you’re all dead…”

To a degree, he’s right. So now the question is, would you buy a standing room only ticket for a plane if you could get it dirt cheap?

I wouldn’t.
