Airline to Offer In-Flight Adult Movies

samzenpus posted more than 2 years ago | from the one-man-mile-high-club dept.

Movies 200

Soon the loud passenger who's had too much to drink on your red-eye flight will be the least of your travel worries. Ryanair Airlines chief Michael O'Leary plans to launch an app that will allow passengers to watch porn on their tablets and smartphones during flight. Mr O'Leary told the Sun: "I'm not talking about having it on screens on the back of seats for everyone to see. It would be on handheld devices. Hotels around the world have it, so why wouldn't we?" Best of all, the app could also be used to gamble or play games in case you got bored during the speaking parts of your in-flight adult movie.

Anyone remember that "Bad Idea Jeans" skit on SNL? (2)

elrous0 (869638) | more than 2 years ago | (#37989118)

You know, the one from the early 90's with a bunch of guys sitting around talking. David Spade says "I knew I should wear a condom...but I figured, hey, when was I ever going to be in Guam again?" Phil Hartman says "I know the guy is coming out of prison, but he says he wants to turn his life around, so Sheila and I are going to give him a place to stay." Bob Odenkirk says "I know it's over, but I'm going to tell my wife about that affair", and so on...

Anyone remember that skit?

"...when was ever going to be in Haiti again?"

While I'm sure Guam has its own risks, I think at the time the risk of AIDS in Haiti was the "bad idea" behind that particular stunt..

My thoughts exactly. I had to look at my calendar to confirm it wasn't April 1st. Regardless of people's desire to apparently have limitless access to porn 24/7 and that most people that determined to be looking at smut on a flight can download it to their phones easily enough, I am still trying to fathom that there's a universe and market niche that actually feels compelled to look at porn while in flight, surrounded by hundreds of people. Is the airline also going to hand out tissue packs and "spank screens" so its customers can jerk off in private? If this is the best the CEO can come up with to increase his airline's profile, he needs to be shown the door.

It's more that, traditionally, playing pocket billiards is done at home, by your self, or with a very good friend, and not in a cramped tin box sitting next to a stranger.

also, Aircraft air is stale enough without adding the musty odour of after-sex.

Well 2 huge flaws, 1. The intent of porn tends to cause a physical change in male viewers that other passengers would rather not witness. 2. I'm as much against censoring of porn and such as anyone else, but when someone is going to play it in visible view of my 5 year old without my consent, that is where the line has to be drawn.

There is no line to be drawn. It is for you to educate your 5 year old about reality. "Peoples watch porn, it is a work fiction that do not reflect reality and certainly do not reflect the puritan value i try to force on you. When you reach puberty you may like to watch porn too, but i will punish you if i find about it." See, that wasn't too hard. IT IS NOT FOR EVERYONE AROUND YOU TO BE CAREFUL BECAUSE YOU WAND YOUR KID AROUND. YOUR KID IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.

What was the last porn movie you saw where they made love?

The last one I saw involved a girl taking two gents at one time and both of them gave her a facial.

First off, you absolutely cannot in any way describe the sex scenes in porn as "making love". Second, the major US airlines all show censored versions of R rated movies.

Those are Airports, places you have to wait in for hours for your aircraft. There's plenty of private places you can be to whack off to said mags before you fly off.
Not only that, but buying it at an airport you're never going to be at again means that some of the shame of meeting someone who KNOWS you bought porn is minimal. That's why 'Lads Mags' have taken off in the UK atleast, there's less of a Stigma in buying Nuts than buying "Dirty MILF Whores Monthly".
We're a strange race sometimes, but there you go.

Frankly I look down at anyone who buys porn. They just don't know how to turn off safe search.

O'Leary is a master at using trolling for free publicity (see his previous proposals for standing-room-only flights and charging passengers to use the toilet, which as far as I know have not come to pass). This is just more free advertising for Ryanair.

Two Things to Note (1)

Dogtanian (588974) | more than 2 years ago | (#37989298)

(1) Ryanair are well-known for making their customers jump through ludicrous hoops to get the misleadingly low advertised price (i.e. you won't) and then nickel and dime them every step of the way. If this is for real, it'll be blatantly (and grossly) overpriced to squeeze yet more money out of the customers. Don't waste your time. Oh, and more importantly...

(2) Michael O'Leary is a well-known attention whore who announces "controversial" ideas like this he knows damn well won't fly^h^h^h go ahead anyway, but will get plenty of attention from the papers in the meantime. It seems to work too, but damned if *I'm* going to dignify the tedious p**** by taking his bullshit seriously.

It's not that bad. You only have to remember 3 things:

1.) Print out the boarding pass before you head to the airport.
2.) Don't buy anything onboard.
3.) Measure and weigh your luggage before you head to the airport. (the limits are draconian)

Never had to pay anything more than the advertised fare + tax + a couple bucks for currency conversion / fees (since I don't live in the UK).

Well, I don't know where you are, but they're still doing bullshit scams like forcing people to pay via their *own* prepaid debit card [telegraph.co.uk] to avoid fees. But of course, if you forget to cancel that card after 6 months, they charge you £2.50 a month for inactivity, and another £10 if it goes into the red because of the fee.

Given that you have to use this card to avoid paying the "additional" card fee, this is an absolutely blatant attempt to set up ludicrous hoops to be jumped through and then scam them anyway if they try jumping through them. No question that Ryanair are operating in even remotely good faith here.

Anyone know's seen O'Leary being interviewed knows that he clearly isn't disturbed by the fact that people think he's a prick whose attitude towards complainants and customers in general borders on contempt, nor that they dislike Ryanair- so long as they keep on flying with them.

I suspect his logic is that people like to bitch about shitty service and the like, but when push comes to shove they'll still fly with Ryanair because they're the cheapest, so it's worth getting publicity regardless of whether it's flattering or not.

Personally, if I know that they're that desparate to shaft me whichever way I turn and find some other way of costing me money even if I do manage to jump through their hoops without a mistake... am I actually getting it cheap?

Why not, indeed. (1)

This is just a lawsuit waiting to happen. From whom? Take your pick: the flight attendants, the person sitting in the window seat who can't relocate to another seat, the parents of the kids sitting across from the aisle, etc, etc.

"It would be on handheld devices."

In case it isn't obvious, a horizontal screen isn't much different than a vertical screen, in terms of viewing angles.

"Hotels around the world have it, so why wouldn't we?"

A hotel room isn't shared with multiple people whom you don't know.

There are some comments here that say that this is nothing but advertising for Ryanair. Well, it worked: I didn't know about their existence before now.

He gives a rats ass about the image of the company, since its image is that they are cheap. More of his brilliant ideas: paying for toilets [dailymail.co.uk], flying without co-pilot and having a flight attended land it in case of trouble [cnn.com] and airplanes with standing room only [telegraph.co.uk]. They run some provoking advertisements too, like giving the finger to their competitors [wikimedia.org], or giving holiday suggestions for Berlusconi [repubblica.it] (he finally resigned a few hours ago!).

I saw somebody reading a porn-magazine on the train once. He had wrapped it in an exercise-book cover and held it relatively close to his face, so the people next to him couldn't see it. But I doubt they would have appreciated ;-)

But from where I sat, I could clearly see it. And it wasn't just a Playboy ("....for the interviews"). It was one of those "under the counter"-mags.

I've no problem with people reading and watching all kinds of (legal) stuff in their own homes, preferably with the blinds shut, but on a train?
Eek.
Worst thing, on a train, I can just leave at the next station of go to the next compartment - not so on a plane.
But I'm sure, RyanAir would love to charge extra for the hand-sanitizer and the disposable toilet-seat covers ....

Why wouldnt we if hotels do it? (1)

Ahem. Because in the plane there is no hotel room around the person?

Anybody who thinks its appropriate to watch an adult movie on his tablet while sitting 30cm away from the neighbor can already do that if he downloads the movie before.
