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

Quoting ORD777 (Thread starter): Are their aircraft comfortable or do they have a really cramped seat pitch?
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.

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:
