LondonSurgeon – all made sense until the last line.

Finding large numbers of paramedics/nurses to work on planes would be a big ask bearing in mind fleet sizes and presumably the need to have surplus capacity due to hours etc. Even if they were available there would be a significant cost at a time when many airline groups are losing money, presumably meaning fares would need to be increased.

I can’t see it ever happening, although I am sure Michael O’Leary would find a way of adding it as another tax.
