Yup it does.

Travelling with mates for a weekend wedding and staying on Northside of Dublin the 4 of us exited the plane first, got through immigration and straight into a taxi and standing in a bar for 1st beer 25 mins after doors opened on plane. 2 couples with hold bags arrived 40 minutes after us and struggled to beleive until bar man confirmed it we have beat them by so much time.

Of course the back row also works and they charge a premium for it...though Iíve found on the last sector of the day they donít always open it!

I don't know where that rumour started but as far as I know it will be three B737-800SFP aircraft from the start.

I stand to be corrected, but I believe all FR 738's delivered since May 2017 are SFP type.

Obviously the decision to take that variant would have been made sometime before then, and someone would have been charged with producing reports on airports that came into play with that aircraft.

I guess SEN was fortunate (some may say - some not) to be at just the right stage of development for Ryanair to show interest.

Flying FRA-DUB last Sunday. Passengers were advised the overhead lockers were for cabin baggage only and that all coats and jumpers etc were to go under the seat in front of you. Is this a new policy?

Oh jolly good, can I send Ryanair the bill for cleaning my coat/jumper once it's been where others shoe have been? 😉

Nope as they have alwasy stated that when ovehead lockers are full. If not there is generally no issue.

The thought never crossed my mind that I could be requested to do so. My coat and jacket was never going under the seat in front. They were polite and didn't insist.

Perhaps there are issues in having 'sold' all the bin space to passengers there is only the space in front of the seat left available to you. Would you have any idea how many bags of Ryanair's stated size they can stow in the overhead lockers?

Big Bins (2002 onwards) 125
Pivot Bins (2010) 132 bags
Space Bins (2015) 194

I really think coat hooks would help speed boarding and de-boarding.
Very good idea

At one point Ryanair were guaranteeing 90 bags in the cabin. I think the numbers you have listed are for the -900ER/-9MAX. Google suggests 174 for the Space Bins compared to 118 for the Pivot bins for the -800/-8MAX. The big innovation is getting bags on their short side, rather than flat. 174 would seems a realistic number even for very full FR flights.

On a BA aircraft circa 10 years ago that went tech because some idiot dragged at one and damaged a seat.

When the bags were measured and controlled at the gate there were more bags getting on, since they relented on that the bags have got bigger as people want to take more. Maybe go back to old regime.

Thank you for your replies. In all the years I've had very few problems flying Ryanair and will continue to fly with them and I guess that type of experience is more indicative of the 130 million + passengers compared to the numbers in the recent 'Which' report, which appears to reflect a small body of low-level miserableness who seem to be habitual moaners.

The latch for the tray table doubles up as a coat hook. This is only on Boeing Sky Interior aircraft.

Just put in the overhead locker then?

The only coat hooks I have seen on an aircraft was on BA and FR (table latch)

So how long ....10 seconds and did this mean when you exited the seat that the aisle was completely clear so you could Usain Bolt out of the plane ?

Deplaning is as quick as the slowest person so having collected jacket and being ready to go is irrelevant if person on front is shuffling along because of poor foot.

You make the assumption that every single person does exactly the same thing in the same way. Good luck with that assumption.

Oh dear! How sad. What are you going to do when you really have something to confront. Calm down and get a life. In the meantime back in the airline industry.

Oh dear what a pathetic post. Life is too short and aviation too interesting. Grow up and listen to others opinions, right or wrong. It's called an exchange of views.
