Ryanair make changes to cabin bag allowance to 'eliminate delays'

Ryanair Flight attendants close the airp

He said: "We believe offering bigger bags at reduced fees will encourage more customers to consider checking-in a bag, which will reduce the high volume of customers we have with two carry-on bags at the boarding gates, which is causing flight delays due to large numbers of gate bag and cabin bag offloads".

To reduce the volume of carry-on bags, non-priority customers will have to place their second piece of hand luggage in the hold from 1 November, although this will be free of charge.

Priority Boarding customers (Plus, Flexi Plus and Family Plus) will still be allowed two carry-on bags.

To accommodate this, the airline will increase its check-in bag allowance from 15kg to 20kg for all bags, and drop its standard 20kg check-in bag fee from €35 to €25.

Ryanair are cutting their cabin baggage allowance and reducing fees for checked bags in order to ease boarding delays.

Chance the Rapper Raises $2.2 Million for Chicago Public Schools
She intends to use the grant to create a dance studio in an unused classroom and teach ballet, hip-hop and modern dance. The principals from one school said the money will help them expand their arts education.

The Ryanair luggage changes will apply to all existing and future bookings from November 1.

Mr Jacobs added: 'These bag policy changes will cost Ryanair over 50million (£46million) per annum in reduced checked bag fees. Knowing this, customers will head to the gate as early as possible, and start queueing, to avoid being parted from their luggage - and enduring a wait at baggage reclaim.

They seemed like a distant memory after the company relaxed its strict rules on allowing more than one item of hand luggage, which meant that you could essentially carry on your small suitcase (rather than checking it in) as well as a second smaller bag, like a laptop or handbag. Priority boarding will cost five pounds (approximately $6.50) at time of booking or six pounds if added up to an hour before take-off.

However, the airline has been threatening to axe the scheme after abuse by passengers led to delays.

For example, a small Mulberry clipper bag, which is designed for weekend travel, measures 23 x 43cm x 19.5cm and would not qualify as a cabin bag under Ryanair's incoming policy.
