I was on my first Ryanair flight last Wednesday, Feb. 22, 2006... London Stansted (STN) to Rome Ciampino (CIA), flight 3002 ... we were told sit anywhere except on the first 6 rows and the last 4. At first I thought they were being reserved for late passengers, but no one ended up seating there. Is this a common practice?
I also learned that the plane we were on is relatively new... EI-DLE was delivered to Ryanair on Feb. 9, 2006. It still smells like new. Anyone know more about it's history? Would this had been it's first revenue flight?
Thanks for any feedback.
