Ryanair To Trial In-flight Gambling
By staff
Irish low-cost airline, Ryanair, is planning to trial in-flight gambling by spring 2007.

Michael O'Leary, chief executive of Ryanair, said the experiment, which will also include in-flight arcade games, will come around 12 months after the carrier trials on-board mobile phone use next spring.

Last April, Ryanair abandoned its first experiment in paid-for in-flight entertainment involving Hollywood films and kids cartoons after passengers showed reluctance to pay for what had once been a free service.

O'Leary said the decision to trial in-flight gambling using portable consoles follows the phenomenal success of its scratch card offer. He dismissed the suggestion that the roll-out of gambling might discourage families from flying Ryanair.

'We recognise your right to object, but good luck, somebody else will have your seat,' he said. O'Leary was speaking after the airline launched a two-million 'free' seat sale.
