RYANAIR plan: In-Flight Smartphone Entertainment App, Complete With Porn Channel

Boss Michael O'Leary said he hopes to launch an in-flight web offer that mimics hotel room pay-TV services.

Passengers would be able to log into a Ryanair app using their iPads or smartphones. They could then pay to gamble, play games, watch a movie — or even view sex scenes.

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?" Ryanair says the plan could take at least a year to get off the ground, given the sky-high cost of securing a powerful enough broadband connection for its planes.

A spokesman said: "Nothing has been decided as yet." But Bob Atkinson, of Travelsupermarket, said: "There may be a market for porn in hotels, but that's in the privacy of a room. Anyone could see it on a plane. It's wrong."
