Uh, no thank you.  A one hour flight with that airline was miserable enough.

So is this fee for standing room only, tacked on with a 150 Euro fee to use the bathroom?

No joke - RyanAir has already promulgated plans for 'vertical' seats  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vertical_seat

Came to say this. I can't imagine 8 hours of the flight attendants hawking scratch-off tickets.

Besides, I stopped trusting Ryanair after my last flight with them. I can understand blocking off certain rows of seats to balance the load on, say, a turboprop, but a 737? Makes me think your pilots don't know how to control the plane.

It's worth the extra £500 to not be flying with RyanAir. Although by the time I check in, use the bathroom, and pay for cabin pressurization, it's probably only a £40 savings.

step 1:  fly spirit once.

step 2:  tell o'leary to keep his limey ass on the right side of the pond.

step 3:  pay a little more and get something that more closely resembles service

Saves time and money on cleaning. When passengers spread out and have two or three seats to themselves they spread out their trash, crumbs on the floor etc. Keeping them in one section means you only have to clean those sections. Telling the self-loading-freight that it's "for balance" keeps them sitting where they are told.

The pilots can control the plane just fine, but the plane won't be flying in it's most efficient trim.  It's not a matter of safety, it's economy.

I don't think so.  I don't think Ryanair was ever serious about those seats and I don't think they were ever serious about charging 1€ to use the bathroom.  Ryanair lives by P.T. Barnum's words:  "I don't care what you say about me.  Just spell my name right."  Any publicity is good publicity, so they deliberately bandy about plans that they know will piss people off because it gets them press, and any press coverage is free advertising.  And it seems to be working.
