If you plan to fly on vacation soon and happen to fly with Ryanair – you may want to double the amount of luggage you can take on board.
Due to new rules, those traveling with the budget carrier now face a major change in how they organize their luggage.
As of November 1st, flyers can only take a small bag as luggage instead of being able to carry a short suitcase to the stop for free as they have become accustomed to.
Ryanair has shown that the bag must not be larger than 40x20x25 cm and must fit under the set before you while on the plane.
This is a major change in the way previously done and will likely mark a shift in how passengers will pack when it comes to flying with the airline.
The new policy also dictates that if your bag is too big upon check-in, you will be charged a fee of 25 kr.
Customers also have to pay £ 8 for a 10 kg check-in bag, or £ 25 for all bags and suitcases over 10 kg. The rules now mean that passengers must pay at least £ 8 fee if they want to take a bag bigger than one that fits under the seat in front of them.
When the changes were introduced on Thursday, the airline was hit with some confusion from customers at airports in the UK, who did not know the new policy. In fact, Ryanair was forced to refrain from many of the new extra charges, against chaotic scenes and dissatisfied passengers.
Flyers were disappointed in the new baggage rules, with many claiming that there is only another way that Ryanair continues to pay more and more money to its customers.
A spokesperson for the airline told Daily Mail: "While our new shipping policy has come into force today (November 1), we have informed our agents about taking a reasonable approach while the customers get used to the new rules."
However, the airline has said that changes have been made to avoid long queues and to make the entire airport process easier than before.
On their website, Ryanair explained the supposed benefits of the change. They said, "The main benefits of this new policy will be reduced flight delays and cheaper checked bags.
"Pack more liquids in a 10kg wheelie bag. Go to the hand signal to the handset. & # 39;
However, it appears that political changes prove to be easier said than done at the moment after Thursday's confusion. So what do you think about the new luggage policy change? Do you think it's a good idea – or not?
