Like many low cost airlines, Ryanair charges its passengers if they want to select certain seats to sit on their flights.
Ryanair flights offer window, center, and aisle seats, so if you want to enjoy the view while flying, you may want to choose the former.
But not all “window” seats actually have a window, as some surprised passengers have discovered.
This is because passengers have discovered that seat 11A on Ryanair flights doesn’t actually have a window – despite it being next to the plane’s wall.
This is due to the layout of the cheap chain’s aircraft.
In fact, the seat only has a one-star rating on the flight review website SeatLink, reports the Liverpool ultrasound.
As one critic said, “There is no window, if you have to look outside to not feel sick, stay away. I thought I was going to throw up 90% of the flight because I had no reference to the outside,” while another said there are “definitely better chairs to sit in”.
Ryanair has often mocked the seat on Twitter. Responding to someone about their first time flying with the airline, a tweet from Ryanair’s official account said: “Book 11A, enjoy the view! [smiley-face]”.
A more recent tweet from Ryanair simply said: “11A needs its own Twitter account”.
On its website, Ryanair describes the seat as the “perfect seat if you’re planning to catch up on some zzz’s on a morning flight”.
It adds, “This chair is also a bit of a life saver late at night when you’ve been traveling all day and only have your eyes closed for a few minutes.”
It comes after Ryanair canceled all its flights to Zaventem Airport in Brussels. Flights to Zaventem are being canceled until at least March 2023 after Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary said winter would be “extremely challenging”.
Mr O’Leary said: “This winter will be extremely challenging, with higher fuel costs, so an increase in airport charges like in Zaventem is not sustainable.”
