Part of the excitement of your holiday is travelling together with friends and family.


Couldn't agree more. I thought it was odd how we all got split up one time. That Watchdog programme put me right off now. Fair enough if you are the last people to book and there is hardly any seats left, but I looked at the seating plan and there was loads of room. You should still get sat together without paying for it. Paying extra to choose where you sit should be banned anyway.

I saw the watchdog program and there was absolutely no doubt they were splitting people up when there was plenty of seats. RyanAir should be bashed.

By 'good sized' hand luggage, you mean they're not the smallest flight allowance...

Doesn't seem to be all UK domestic flights, we looked at going from Leeds to Dublin on 16th August and we cant check a bag for that price. Not voting either way

that's because Dublin is not a domestic flight
Yes watchdog showed them up, my partner is a nervous flyer, and she found it tough, but we decided on principle not to pay any more, as we had already paid a lot for our seats.

they are a commercial organisation

if they decide to make money out of seat choice, that's up to them

you can vote with your money & fly BA or EJ instead if you feel strongly about it

Geography not your strong suit.
Some would actually pay Ryan air to keep them separated from their other halfs..

They will be strapping folk to the wings next, if they refuse to pay for their designated seats!

Both of which do the same but if you aren't called Ryanair then it's okay
Look into advance rail fares instead. No hassle waiting around at the airport, no luggage restrictions and not the same terrible impact on the environment.

Not quite true, Ryanair recently changed their seating algorithm - they used to attempt to seat passengers together (or the system did) as best they could when checking in online and easyJet/BA etc still do. It's not always possible so I'm in the pay or shut up camp but Ryanair are pushing their luck with this one
Who cares if you're split up or if you're not able to take half of the contents of your home with you. It's 9 quid for a flight.
If you use online check-in then a fairly simple trick to ensure that you are seated with partner or friends is to check in two days prior to the flight and then choose to re-select any seats that aren't together. Invariably you'll still have to pay, but you won't need to pay to choose every seat, only pay to move the seats that Ryan Air's dodgy system places away from your friends or family.

You're welcome

interesting that. I booked a trip for 7 of my mates and 6 of us were all sitting next ot each other the other was else where unfortunately. I always thought the seating arrangement was pretty good.

Also, if you pay the £2 or whatever it is to pick your seat then you can be sure you will seat next to each other, youll probably save more than other airlines :-)

You could not have flown with Ryanair in the last couple of months then as their free seat allocation policy changed in mid May and the situation now is that if you don't buy seats to ensure you sit together, you will no longer be allocated a free seat next to anyone on the same booking when you check in. It's a new money generating policy that Ryanair introduced suddenly without any pre-warning or announcement. To my knowledge, when there is not a seat sale going on, the cheapest standard seat price is £3.75 for internal domestic flights and £6 for international flights.
2 days before my holiday I booked my seat to sit next to my wife cost £9 only to find the seat had been already allocated to someone else when I boarded , the flight attendant refused to help and had to sit in my original seat, so I paid 9 pounds for nothing.

It's still quite likely you will pay half the price of BA even if you add a seat fee. Oh, and the bottled water is 30p cheaper than on domestic BA flights!

I see, it was may 5th. I just checked in my mother and grandmother in law and they're next to each other. Tbf at some costs £15 return you can't moan how they try and make money. I think with them you know what you get and I'm happy with it 2hrs isn't going to do much for me, altho I see how it can be difficult for families especially with children.

Worst Airline Ever

If you book flights with say Thomson, TC, Monarch etc, then you'll likely pay more for that flight on it's own than a flight with Ryanair + how much it costs to sit next to eachother. I was on a Thomson flight recently and people were split up on a 767 aircraft, most scheduled airlines charge to GUARANTEE you sit next to eachother, whilst I don't agree with it, it's nothing new.
Ryanair promised they were going to start treating customers better. This new seating policy of deliberately breaking up groups of 2+ people and dispersing them as far as possible from each other is bringing them a lot of bad PR. I wonder how much longer they’ll keep it up before O’Leary apologises and drops it.
We have booked £1500 of flights since this story broke. We would have flown Ryanair but are now flying EasyJet and others on principle.

Michael O'Leary apologise for anything ? No chance.
