Ryanair: their middle seat, money making scheme?

There have been a lot of reports in the media about Ryanair splitting up passengers who do not pay for an upgrade. This is my recent experience.

It is only recently I have a noticest something. Previously when I have been travelling with a companion, I always ended up sitting separately. Luckily, as a regular solo traveller, I have never been tempted to upgrade to seats together. I can handle a 3 hour flight alone, but others might not be like me. Imagine how much money Ryanair collects each flight.
