Ryanair cuts cabin baggage allowance to ease delays

Ryanair Flight attendants close the airp

Ryanair has repeatedly threatened to review its second-free bag policy, which now allows customers to carry one "normal" cabin bag (55cm x 40cm x 20cm in size and 10kg in weight) and one additional small bag (such as a handbag, laptop case or shopping bag) onboard for free.

The company said that there was simply not enough overhead space in the cabin for the volume of carry-on bags customers are bringing on board, with highs loads of 97 per cent in August, which are causing boarding and flight delays.

Trust us, that's a LOT of Buckfast.

.

Under the changes announced on Wednesday, Ryanair passengers without priority boarding will only be able to take one smaller carry-on bag on board the aircraft.

In what amounts to the the biggest overhaul of its baggage policy in four years, the low-priced airline said only those who pay the fee will be allowed to take a larger bag (55cm x 40cm x 20cm and no heavier than 10kg) into the cabin.

Ryanair spokesman Kenny Jacobs said the reduced fees would cost the airline more than €50 million per year in reduced checked bag fees.

Non-priority boarders, on the other hand, will only be able to take one small carry-on bag; anything deemed too big or with wheels will be taken at the gate and put in the hold free of charge.

The Sun Online previously reported that the airline is urging airports to ban the sale of alcohol before 10am and to limit the number of drinks per boarding pass to a maximum of two.

I would never do that. "If I thought he was going to be out of his depth I wouldn't put him through that". I think that the Wales team is able to drag the match in their native walls.

As part of the policy change, which will be implemented for flights from November 1 onwards, only Ryanair's Priority Boarding passengers will still be allowed to take two carry-on bags onboard the aircraft.

The changes to baggage policy come in on 1 November.

There will be two queues at the gate: Priority customers/two bags and non-priority/one bag only.

Standard Priority Boarding costs €5 per person, per flight.

€/£5 at the time of the flight booking. It is available up to one hour prior to scheduled departure.

What about a 15kg bag?

What about bookings before the new policy was implemented?
