All aircraft Captains are handed weight distribution allocation details by the ground crew! It is a nonsense that Ryanair do this because you do not see a normal Corfu flight with rows of empty seats nor do you see a 747 heading for Miami with empty seats.

As far as I'm aware some rows of seats are kept empty for passengers hold luggage when the over head cabins are full---I've seen this happen, and, when the empty rows are full of luggage---the overspill has to go into the hold delaying departure---with Ryanair time is money and they do like to blow their trumpet informing the passengers that's another flight has landed before or on time.
As an aside, we were on the first flight out of Corfu with Thomson a few years back---Me,hubby and one other passenger, I'm sure the plane wasn't balanced as we could sit anywhere we liked on the flight.

Many moons ago when I worked in Glasgow, my boss, who was not exactly small, was asked to move to the opposite side of the aircraft to even the weight out. He, being a good laugh, delighted in telling us all about how his weight mattered so much to British Airways!
