Flight No: FR2656
Route: London Stansted (STN) 🇬🇧 - Paphos International (PFO) 🇨🇾
Airline: Ryanair UK
Aircraft: Boeing 737 MAX 8-200 [EI-HEN]
As I’m sure we all know, the 737 MAX is a fairly controversial aircraft even to this day. So today when I found out it was scheduled for my Ryanair flight to Paphos I was rather delighted to be flying it, so decided to make a topic on the trip.
Now before someone thinks they’re funny and says hAhA rYaNaIr + 737 mAx dEaDlY cOmBiNaTiOn!!! It was a safe and pleasant flight with (surprise, surprise!) a great landing at the end, so please don’t go there thx.
Nothing quite beats an early flight, especially one of the first out of Stansted. Arriving at the airport nice and early at 4AM on a crisp October Morning.
After going through all the boring stuff (Check in, security, COVID document checking, etc) It was time for some good scran at spoons 🤤
It wasn’t long before a gate was given and it was time to board just before 6AM. Of course, boarding was done in a Ryanair style - by air stairs.
Here’s a picture on the inside with the new Ryanair Sky Interior (definitely not bad, massive upgrade from the old interior for sure)
No good pics on departure unfortunately due to it still being pitch black outside, but there was a beautiful sunrise somewhere over Western Europe.
Some nice scenery over Europe. The First is over Austria 🇦🇹 and the second somewhere near the Greek-Madedonian Border 🇬🇷🇲🇰

All in all, a good enough flight. I enjoyed flying on the 737 MAX and it’s definitely good to see them back in the air again, I would have no problem with flying it again in the future.
