slayer199: The libertarian in me says they should be able to offer that option. Anyone that would fly on a plane without seatbelts would accept the risk, but they'd also be total idiots.

So when it happens and Ryanair is sued, castigated by the press and public, and run out of business...it would be glorious./sarcasmYes, I'm a libertarian, but I think eliminating seatbelts is stupid. I think a better solution to removing seatbelts would be for Ryanair to actually innovate and find ways to save weight on a plane without sacrificing safety.
dletter: It has nothing to do with weight, they just want to pack more people into the planes. Stupid seats taking up valuable space.
