The head of a discount European airline is taking a step toward charging passengers pay to use the bathroom while in flight. The CEO of Ryanair says he has asked engineers at Boeing to design bathrooms with doors that open and close only if you swipe a credit card.

The pay toilets are expected to bring an additional $20 million in annual revenue for the airline.
