Default Ryanair A380

I wonder how many seats they could fit on this?

My guess would be none since it'd be too big to be profitable. One of the reasons Ryanair can be so cheap is the quick boarding and deboarding. With such a large aircraft this would take too long. Plus it'd be much more difficult to get that amount of tickets sold, they'd have to lower their prices so far it'd not be profitable anymore.

Bigger is not always better.

As the A380-800 has a fictional one-class capacity of 853 seats, i guess they would try to put at least 854 in it..

Lay them in flat stacked at least 2 high just like the old slavers did and they could carry at least 1600.

I'm surprised Ryan Air hasn't followed this design and place cranks at each seat for passengers to manually power the turbines.

Ryanair just announced that they will begin looking into transatlantic service to the US in the next 4-5 years, so maybe this won't be a fantasy after all.

But they probably won't pick the A380 for it. More likely they'll choose the 787 or A350XWB. Those planes are smaller, but certainly capable of flying such distances. Besides they consume far less fuel than an A380, wich is certainly important for a low-cost airline. On top of that, smaller planes are easier to fill.

Completely agree a 777 or 787 would make more sense, but who knows what Ryanair is thinking. Especially if Airbus offers them A380s for a deep, deep discount.
Just something to think about.

Definitely not a 777 way too big. I think A330NEO is the most likely choice for them, if not that then 787-8/9. No bigger!

That airbus A380 picture, beautiful. I think they choose for 787. Fast, small and easy to board

They wouldn't put seats in it, just hangar straps to hold onto. They could provide a small bottle for urine at a nominal fee.

That's cool. I'm wished had a couch instead of that dreadful economy sardine class seat.
I'd bring my linen & pillow though. Wood is a bit unconfortable.
