Ryanair says any in-flight entertainment will be 'family friendly'
The airline has denied reports that it would allow passengers to watch porn on flights.

RYANAIR HAS MOVED to deny reports today that it would allow passengers to watch pornography as part of any in-flight entertainment it would introduce.

Chief Executive Michael O’Leary was quoted in The Sun newspaper as saying the airline could launch an app which would allow passengers to watch sex scenes on their smartphones or tablets in the future.

“Hotels around the world have it, so why wouldn’t we?” he is quoted saying.

As the Daily Mail points out this could lead to a situation where passengers are watching erotic scenes with children seated “barely feet away”.

But it is understood that the Irish airline has no plans to introduce such a service.

Ryanair is currently reviewing potentially introducing internet services on board flights but a spokesperson played down any possibility that passengers would be able to watch pornography.

The spokesperson said:

While Michael encourages Ryanair’s ancillary revenue teams to explore all optional products to ensure our airfares remain the lowest in Europe, our onboard sales and services will always be family friendly.
