Mr O'Leary also denied that seating policy had changed.

However numerous members of the public have stated that they have, until recently, been seated together by the Ryanair system despite not having paid the seat surcharge. Until recently, however, most groups who did not pay the seat surcharge were simply allocated seats alongside each other if such seats were available at check-in.

If you want to select a seat, pay €2.'People are whining and whingeing – but you can't sit where you want.

Sorry, you can't.'In a statement, Ryanair said customers who don't wish to purchase a seat are randomly allocated a seat, 'free of charge'.

Its website states standards seats start at €2 (£2), priority seats cost from €7 (£7) and priority seats with extra legroom start at €11 (£11).

Separately, Ryanair's family seating policy came into effect in October, making it mandatory for one adult on the booking to purchase a seat so that children under 12 could sit next to them. Before his Liveline showdown, Mr O'Leary spoke to RTé's Seán O'Rourke.

But he denied that Ryanair's policy had changed in recent weeks and argued that people noticed being split up more lately.

On that radio show, the colourful businessman added that in incidents where families were separated on Ryanair flights it is 'the responsibility of the adult who booked the flight.'He added: 'We haven't changed our policy.

If you're not happy to pay €2 for a seat, stop complaining and whingeing.

Ryanair chief Michael O'Leary yesterday admitted that the airline's controversial booking system will not allow groups of passengers to sit together if they don't pay an extra fee.

The admission comes after weeks of denials from Ryanair that it is deliberately splitting families up unless they pay extra to sit together.
