Crain's Chicago Business has been the leading source of news and insight on the city's economic scene for over 30 years.

(AP) -- Budget airline Ryanair says aircraft manufacturer Boeing Co. does not want to fulfill its request for planes with more seats and fewer toilets because it believes that would compromise passenger safety.

Ryanair chief executive Michael O'Leary says he still hopes to convince Boeing that removing two toilets and adding six seats would not slow down emergency evacuations.

A spokeswoman for Chicago-based Boeing said the company did not discuss conversations with customers.

Keen to cut costs, the airline says it also wants passengers to pay to use the toilets on its short flights within Europe.
