Ryanair - Hand luggage capacity

Now almost everyone is converted to hand luggage there is no capacity to carry it. Only 163 passengers on Friday night but 4 hand cases had to go in the hold causing confusion and delay. Not the first time this has happened!

Because 6 of the overhead lockers on Ryanair flights hold scratch cards, thus reducing capacity for passengers hand luggage.

Not all airlines charge for a hold bag as LCC's do so more people carry larger items of carry on on airlines like Ryanair.. I've seen this problem a few times on Easyjet flights as they have a larger bag allowance.

I was on a flight recently, got to a seat, put my bag on the seat and was removing my coat. A guy came up from behind me and put his large carry on in the space above my seat without a by or a leave.

i was not pleased since I was just about to put my bag in there (it was where I was sitting after all) so I asked him nicely to remove said bag and find some other space. The bl00dy cheek of some people.
