Ryanair gives an inch...more legroom on new planes

The latest changes from Ryanair promise slimmer seats to give you more leg room and plane interiors that are "less yellow".

As part of their Always Getting Better campaign over the past two years, the airline has already eased rules on cabin baggage and reduced penalties for not printing your boarding pass

This year, they're introducing automatic check-in through a new app, and a new Leisure Plus travel option that includes a checked-in bag and a reserved seat.

There will also be just six different prices for bags, instead of the current 108.

Ryanair’s chief marketing officer Kenny Jacobs said the new planes' seats would give passengers an inch of extra leg-room, and that LED lights and less yellow in the colour scheme would create a different ambience. He said the new planes had more headroom, bigger windows and coat hooks.

The planes are already being rolled out.
