Ryanair brings in new rules on cabin bags

Under the new policy only 95 passengers per flight - around half of the total - will be permitted to pay for the right to take the extra bag on board. Kenny Jacobs, Ryanair's chief marketing officer, said the new policy "Will speed up boarding and cut flight delays" by encouraging people to either travel very light with just one small bag, or to check-in a medium-sized bag. Currently Ryanair allows customers a small personal bag, and passengers who have paid for priority boarding can take a 10kg bag into the cabin as well. Those without priority boarding currently take pull-along bags and other medium-sized luggage with them until they board at the gate - at which point bags are transferred to the hold free of charge, which means passengers can take two bags without paying extra fees. From November, if passengers turn up at the boarding gate with more than the 20 litre carry-on bag but haven't paid for the priority boarding status, the bag will be placed in the hold at a charge of £25, Ryanair said.
