Flew Ryanair last month for the first time - it was a bargain, so thought we'd try it and if we didn't like it, we wouldn't do it again.....we won't be doing it again LOL
Not bothered about sitting together (shocked to see, when checking in online, that although there were available seats all around me, the system allocated a seat for Dave 25 rows behind me!!), and only had small cabin bag each that easily fitted under the seat in front.

But it was the chaos going on around us; the queues, the fight for cabin bag space, everyone swapping seats to sit together, and the filthy aircraft Sick

 Well we tried it, but it's back to the civilised world of Easyjet for us. Never pay for checked baggage - put liquids in one wheelie cabin bag and approach the staff at self service check-in & politely ask if we can check-in the bag on a voluntary basis, because we know how limited space is onboard blah blah. They take us to a self service check-in desk and tap in a code to override the payment process. Seamless.

It took me about 20 years to come to that conclusion Claire LOL.

The natural thought would be that Ryanair would leave seats in pairs......No..when allocating seats Ryanair fill the middle seats first in the belief nobody wants to pay for a middle seat. 
If possible they will always leave one empty window seat between rows about 20-28 when there is not a lot of seats left to try to get you to pay for a seat because they believe you will think you are going to end up with that one.
You have to use tactical thinking when checking in with them.

I believe flights are released in stages, possibly by routes, as I know the Faro route I'm interested in isn't always available very early when others are. I've found that they start early in the morning (from 6am/7am ish).

Just booked EasyJet flights (November to December, and January to February) from Manchester to Faro. £102.00 and £120.00 for two of us including pre booked seats. Cheaper than both Jet2 and Ryanair.

We have just booked two fights to Faro from Prestwick for £128. After adding seats (??) cases and express boarding and two cases the cost is now £205. This will be our fourth visit to Albufeira this year and I have got to say Ryan-Air are improving.
