In the Ryanair planes there have never been possible to reserve a specific seat in advance… Until now…
Earlier you had to run from the airport building and up the stairs if you wanted to sit a little bit more comfortable… On the first seats ahead and in the middle of the planes (close to the emergency exits) there is more leg space… From this month it is possible to book this seats when you check in. For a fixed price (12 euros one way) you can choose your favourite seat. In that price you have Priority Boarding (worth 6 euros) included as well. The rest of the passengers still have to fight for the regular seats on the other rows..
We think the price is fair to get a little bit more comfort! But we have discovered once that ONE GUY has bought one seat, and tries to reserve the rest of the 5 seats for his friends that have’nt paid. If you try to sit there, he can’t just sayt that they are occupied! That’s not fair!
On some of the Ryanair flights, the crew will check that you have bought seats there. Otherwise you have to find another seat, even not all of the best seats are sold out!
