Travellers Angered by Ryanair’s Change in Baggage Policy
- Ryanair’s new hand luggage policy kicks in today
- You’ll have to pay extra for two bags in overhead lockers
- People took to Twitter to vent their frustrations
From today, Ryanair has changed its’ policy on hand luggage, limiting what you can bring on the plane.
Before the change, travellers could take two items of hand luggage on the plane- one larger bag and one smaller bag.
Now, you can take both through security, but can only bring the smaller into the cabin, the larger will go on hold for no extra cost.
If you wish to keep both with you, you’ll have to pay an extra £5.
Travellers took to Twitter to air their frustrations with the company.
Travellers also pointed out a flaw in Ryanair’s new rules.
The company said that it has introduced the change in order to speed up boarding and reduce delays caused by passengers trying to fit large carry on bags into the overhead luggage compartments.
However Twitter users believe that the policy will actually make boarding times longer.
However, there were also messages of support on the social media site.
Some were quick to point out that the new policy won’t actually cost anyone extra, unless they want the larger case to be stored in the overhead locker.
