Ryanair passengers warned to 'avoid' sitting in row 11, 12 or 33

Ryanair passengers have been warned to check the flight map ahead of flying out on their flights in July or August. Customers with the low-cost carrier and budget airline can get the best seats on a Ryanair flight every time with a handy plane map.

The best seats for getting off the plane first are the front five rows, Ryanair - which is rivalled by Easyjet, Jet2, TUI and more - tells passengers. The best seats for legroom are in in rows 1 A-C, 2 D-F, 16, and 17 where flights offer extra legroom primarily because they are located near the emergency exits.

Ryanair also says passengers who reserve a seat in row 16 and 17 are free to check-in up to 60 days before take-off. For those who want to take pictures from the flight, aim for window seats located between rows 15 and 18 on Ryanair flights.

The airline says: "They’re the Instagram photos that have always eluded you - the one with the perfect pinky-blue sky, fluffy clouds and otherworldly rays of sunlight, all framed by a cheeky wing peeking out from the corner.

"To capture these absolute beauties, book a window seat that’s located somewhere between rows 15 and 18 – it’s your time to shine." The best seats to get food and drink, on the other hand, are seats in rows 1, 2, or 33 on Ryanair flights.

If you want to sleep, then 11A would be the best choice as it doesn't have a window. Ryanair says: "Not a lot of people realise that seat 11A has no window, meaning it’s the perfect seat if you’re planning to catch up on some zzzs during a morning flight."

Seats to avoid include 11A because of its lack of window while 12A and F may have a misaligned or missing a window too. 1 and 33 are also seen as ones to avoid - due to their proximity to the bathrooms - which could impact your experience.
