Ryanair flights transport Britons on holiday all over Europe for very low fares. Different passengers have varying needs when it comes to a plane cabin and seating. Some people want lots of legroom, others prefer to be near the bathroom and so on.
“Can’t wait to get your holiday started, get to your meeting, or make your way home?” said Ryanair.
“Plan ahead and book a seat in rows 1 A, B, C or 2 D, E, F to make sure you’re first on and first off the flight.”
These seats aren’t just ideal for fliers hoping to dash off speedily – they’re also good for bathroom needs.
“This seating arrangement is also perfect for anyone who makes a habit of forgetting to use the bathroom before the seat-belt sign comes on,” said Ryanair. “And we all know one of those.”
Extras often come at an additional cost with Ryanair and passengers hoping to bag the seats will have to pay.
Ryanair states: “Customers can select and buy their preferred seat online from the time of booking right up to two hours before each booked flight.”
There are three types of reserved seats available for purchase online, one of which are front seats.
These seats at the front of the plane cost from: “€/£13.01 – Rows 2 (A, B, C)-5 per flight.”
Ryanair explains on its site how to book a seat. “You will see the option to select and purchase a seat when you are making a reservation online or alternatively through the My Bookings section or during the online check-in.
“You can select your seat from the seat map. The selected seat will be highlighted and the price displayed. If you are happy with your selection click on confirm and proceed.”
The airline adds: “We reserve the right to reassign seats at any time, for operational, safety or security reasons.”
Travellers should be aware that reserved seat fees are non-refundable.
No matter where travellers sit, however, eagle-eyed Ryanair fliers will notice that none of the seats have pockets.
This is to ensure a very speedy turnaround when the plane lands. Ryanair takes 25 minutes to complete the turnaround process for a short-haul flight, according to The Telegraph.
With nowhere to dispose of detritus, travellers are subconsciously encouraged to take their rubbish with them.
Consequently, Ryanair cabin crew can spend less time cleaning around the seats after passengers disembark.
