Cabin baggage - don't get caught out

LanguedocLiving, Nov 2

Ryanair continues to infuriate their passengers by not only changing their baggage rules, but doing it with little notice, and little publicity.

On Thursday 1 November, the day of the change of rules, delays of up to three hours were reported in some airports.

Don't get caught out on your next flight - here are the current rules for cabin baggage:


Non-priority passengers: One small bag such as a handbag, laptop bag or small backpack up to 40x20x25cm that must fit under the seat in front of you.

Priority passengers: One small bag up to 40x20x25cm and one bag of 55x40x20cm and up to 10kg


One cabin bag up to 56x45x25cm with no weight limit, but you must be able to lift it into the overhead locker. EasyJet says only about 70 cabin bags can fit in the overhead lockers, so all others will be put in the hold.

Any bags larger than the specified size will be checked into the hold for a fee.

British Airways

One cabin bag up to 56x45x25cm and 23kg and one handbag/laptop bag (max. 23kg and up to 40x30x15cm) for standard fares. The smaller bag is guaranteed to go in the cabin, but on busy flights, the larger bag may be put in the hold free of charge.
