<b>MILE-HIGH PORN <br></b><br><br>Flying on Ryanair can become fun. Boss Michael O'Leary recently revealed that he wants 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 porn. O'Leary said, "Hotels around the world have it, so why wouldn't we?" But the move raises the prospect of passengers watching porn films with children sitting barely feet away. 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. This isn't the first time that the outspoken chief executive has come out with a whacky idea. Last month he said he was looking at removing all but one toilet from his planes to put in extra seats. He has previously proposed charging passengers for using the toilet in-flight. The latest brainwave from the budget airline boss was revealed as Ryanair bucked airline industry gloom by raising its full-year net profit forecasts by 10 per cent to £377m.

<b>BLIND BOOKING <br></b><br><br>Planning a holiday takes time and effort. But what if you could leave all the bookings and arrangements to someone else and even get them to choose the holiday destination? This trend may not appeal to every traveller, but the 'blind booking' trend has taken off in America this year. The America-based Nextpedition. com customises mystery package holidays for thrill-seekers willing to leave their entire itinerary and destination in the hands of a travel specialist. The consumer takes an interactive online quiz to determine their 'Travel Sign' based on their hobbies and interests to help define what they might want from a travel experience. After a consultation with a 'Nextpedition Specialist', a mystery itinerary is created based on their Travel Sign and budget. The destination and itinerary are unknown until a traveller's journey begins and is revealed day by day via a smartphone. The traveller(s) receives a mobile device called the Travel Console, to use on the trip. Day by day, the Travel Console reveals portions of the itinerary like destinations and activities.
