Default Ryanair seatbelts length

Canary117New Member


So I know I'm big. I' in the process of losing (currently 23 stone ish and 5ft 11)- I fit fine on the virgin plane i flew last week there and back with an extender only needed on the return flight.. It was a bit tight but plane seats are. I am a UK size 26 /28

However I am terrified of the Ryanair flight I have in a week. I should fit in the seat especially cause I'm sitting next to a friend but I'm terrified about the seatbelt.

I spoke to Ryanair livechat and they said the belts are 30 inches and the extender only adds 14 inches max (which seems really small compared to other planes. I always thought extenders added like 20 inches!) I' even more scared now that i won' fit EVEN with an extendor. Has anyone got any Ryanair experience? I'm losing sleep over this and having panic attacks every night

I've never flown Ryanair before, but I think some people bring their own seat belt extenders on flights sometimes. That way you can get a longer one for personal use. Otherwise I would go back and talk to the airline about your concerns. Ask them what they can/will do if the extender isn't enough when you're on the plane, or what you can do (can you bring your own extender, if that's what you decide?), etc.

It's likely they've had bigger clients than you before, so there's probably something that can be done. It sounds like it's a stressful situation, so I hope things will get sorted soon and you can relax on your flight.
