Ryanair Have Now Whacked An Extra Charge On Something We’ve Been Taking For Granted

Megan Cassidy

In a completely unprecedented move from Ryanair (note the sarcasm)… they’ve added another sneaky little charge.

We’ve gotten very used to bringing two small carry-ons under 10KG on flight, with one being placed in the hold and the other under the seat in front.

But pretty soon you’ll be attempting to stuff your handbag into your wheelie, or else you’ll face an extra charge of up to €10.

Ryanair have announced that “non-priority” customers will be charged €6 – €10 for an extra carry-on bag, in an effort to “eliminate boarding/flight delays.”

Ryanair spokesperson Kenny Jacobs said: “From November 2018, we are introducing a new lower cost 10kg checked bag and changing our carry-on bag policy.

“Priority Boarding customers will continue to enjoy two free carry-on bags. All other (non-priority) customers will be allowed one free (small) carry-on bag, and those who wish to check in a second bigger 10kg bag can do from €/£8 at the time of booking.”

He added: “60% of customers will be unaffected by these changes and we expect that the other 40% will either choose to buy Priority Boarding or a 10kg check bag or will choose to travel with only one (free) small bag as 30% already do so today.”

That’s just great.
