Seat belts on airplanes are useless.
That was the latest rant by Michael O’Leary, the chief executive for RyanAir, the ultra-low-cost airline based in Ireland.
O’Leary, who opposes seat belts because he is pushing for standing-room sections of his planes, called aviation authorities who disagree with him “plonkers.”
“Seat belts don't matter,” O’Leary told The Telegraph. “If there ever was a crash on an aircraft, God forbid, a seat belt won’t save you.”
