Ryanair changes cabin baggage rules

Ryanair is tightening the rules on what passengers pay to take luggage onto the plane, in order to “speed up boarding”.

From November, passengers will still be allowed to take one “small personal bag” into the cabin, as long as it will fit under the seat in front.
But they will have to pay 8 euros if they also want to take a 10kg bag, such as a pull-along suitcase, on board.

Until now passengers without priority boarding, a limited number of whom can take on a small case as hand luggage for €6 per flight, have been able to check small carry-on bags for free at boarding gates,
Ryanair has now scrapped that and is introducing a lower rate for smaller, checked-in baggage. Passengers will pay €8 – rather than €25 – for any case weighing less than 10kg.
The airline said the move is not aimed at making money, but was intended to “improve punctuality and reduce boarding gate delays”.
