RYANAIR has promised to get Europe flying again from July. The only problem is, it might not have given long-grounded flyers enough of an incentive to return to the air.

Already a pain in the behind, airport procedures for passengers have just entered a whole new era.

Ryanair's own video explaining how flyers will be expected to take their own temperature before they leave home, wear a facemask all the time at the airport and on board, and ask permission to use the aircraft toilet, are probably sufficient on their own to make all but the most determined of passengers think twice about whether they really want to subject themselves to being akin to extras in a dystopian movie.
