Just curious.... What is Ryanair longest flight by flight time or distance? Are their aircraft comfortable or do they have a really cramped seat pitch?

I guess this is Brindisi-Stansted or Prestwick-Murcia, both a little more than three hours. And no, their planes are not comfortable at all, very cramped in fact. And they even decided to quit their inflight entertainment system  Sad

And to add some balance to the discussion, the seating pitch / number of seats in FR's 732/738 is in line with European charter carriers.

Doesn't make it comfortable, but does mean theat FR are doing nothing different to anyone else.

They are quite cramped from a pitch prospective, unless you get one of the 2 exit rows (12 seats total). What is actually worse is the fact that their seats don't recline, have tray tables, or pockets.

That is because no one bought it

Ryanair's seat pitch is 30" - which is perfectly comfortable for someone 6'.1". Its seat pitch is better than (most) charter airlines, BMI Baby and easyJet, and it is equal to that of Air Malta, Virgin Express, Ukraine International and LTU International. BA and VS only have economy seats with 31" pitch - only 1" more. Having flown FR over 70 times, I find them to be perfectly comfortable - despite being 6'.1".

FR's longest route is GRO to NYO - at about 1,146 nms. This is likely to take between 2 hours 20 minutes and 2 hours 35 minutes, or less if there is a tail wind. Here are some other long routes:

CIA (41°47'58"N 12°35'42"E) NYO (58°47'19"N 16°54'44"E) 1033 nm
DUB (53°25'17"N 06°16'12"W) FAO (37°00'52"N 07°57'57"W) 987 nm
DUB (53°25'17"N 06°16'12"W) AGP (36°40'30"N 04°29'57"W) 1008 nm
DUB (53°25'17"N 06°16'12"W) CIA (41°47'58"N 12°35'42"E) 1030 nm
STN (51°53'06"N 00°14'06"E) BRI (41°08'20"N 16°45'38"E) 937 nm
STN (51°53'06"N 00°14'06"E) XRY (36°44'41"N 06°03'36"W) 947 nm
STN (51°53'06"N 00°14'06"E) RIX (56°55'25"N 23°58'16"E) 880 nm
STN (51°53'06"N 00°14'06"E) TMP (61°24'51"N 23°36'16"E) 954 nm
STN (51°53'06"N 00°14'06"E) BDS (40°39'27"N 17°56'49"E) 994 nm
PIK (55°30'34"N 04°35'12"W) CIA (41°47'58"N 12°35'42"E) 1064 nm
