Ryanair Climbing Form London Airports

When I fly (Ryanair) from London (Stansted or Luton) I realized one strange thing, that never happens when I take off from other airports:

Usually B738s take off, than climb and after 10 or 11 mins you are at FL 370. When you depart form London, a few minutes after takeoff the airplane stops climbing and the engine power is reduced. After about 10 minutes low altitude low speed, climbing restarts, pilots give full thrust to engines and then you rech your final FL.

Is this a standard procedure for London flights?

Yes - the departure (and arrival) procedures are more complicated for several airports in that area due to the close proximity of other airports. Typically they involve climbing to a specific altitude until a certain point is reached, then step climb to the next level, etc. This is not a Ryanair specific thing.

In London you usually climb to 6000' and maintain 250KIAS... and once clear of the traffic the controller clears you for further climb, So set climb thrust and continue to climb...

Quoting F.pier (Thread starter):

This has happened to me many times. Sometimes you'll be level until a 747 passes 1000 ft overhead. Then the climb begins anew. London is complicated.
