Ryanair 737-800 Capacity

Mon Dec 12, 2005 3:46 am

I was on a couple of Ryanair flights this year: STN-TMP-STN. Seem to recall counting the rows on the A/C, and doing the math ended up figuring that the plane held 198 passengers. Anyone know what the actual capacity is. I was near the back, and assumed that they start numbering their rows at Row 1?
Just curious, seems like an incredibly high capacity for that A/C.

IIRC, the Ryanair 738s seat 189 people, which is the maximum for the type. Did you make a typo?

I thought it was 189, comprising 31 rows of six seats and one row of three seats.

They have 189 seats as that is the max number of seats allowed on the 738. Plain and simple  Smile

Boeing should make them a 737-900ER with additional emergency exits (like Airbus did for U2) and even more seats. This would reduce CASM further, especially with the high fuel prices.

If i'm not mistaken this has been launched with lion air in indonesia having ordered them.

How many people carry U2 319's?
And how much was the maximum allowed without the extra emergency doors?

easyJets A319 have 156 seats installed. This also means that they need 4 F/A's on board, whilst they would need 3 when 150 people were on board. easyJet stated that the extra F/A would pay herself back by increased on-board sales. However, rumours suggested that easyJet were to abandon this policy again and removing the extra 6 seats (or seat covers, at least).

If my memory serves me right, the maximum without the extra emergency door is 142 passengers.

You are right, I counterchecked it at Boeing. While the 737-900ER actually seats 215, the non-ER only seats a maximum of 189, same as the 737-800, due to to emergency exit issues. I didn't know that Boeing fixed that. Congratulations to Boeing!

Which is less than their 73Gs - Oops.

I suppose that's the reason why they asked Airbus to fit the extra doors. Are there any other airlines flying 319s with the extra emergency exit? I was surprised the Germanwings A319s don't feature it. Will the Wizzair A319s they ordered have the extra emergency exit?

How come the 73G can have 149 seats while the A319 can only have 142 seats when the number of exits are exactly the same?

I thought that 4 x Type I exits plus one pair of o/w exits allowed 150 seats, period?

Germanwings' newly ordered A319s, fitted with IAE V2500 engines will feature the extra emergency exits and will have 156 seats: Airbus press release
