easyJet baggage policy a success

easyJet’s new policy of differentiating between passengers with 56mm tall cabin bags and those only of 50mm seems to have been very well received.  Essentially easyJet plus cardholders, those on ‘Flexi fare’, easyJet plus Upfront or Extra Legroom customers, can continue to bring on board one piece of cabin baggage no bigger than 56x45x25cm including handles and wheels – and use easyJet plus Speedy Boarding to board first in order to secure space in the overhead lockers.

For everyone else 50mm luggage is guaranteed for the cabin.  If it is up to 56mm (the depth of the overhead container on modern Airbus and Boeing aircraft) you might be told it is going in the hold.

If you are checking in manually, or have hold cases, clients are offered the chance for carry-on items to join the luggage in the hold.  If all you need for the journey is a book or newspaper you can check-in your roller bag for free.  Savvy travellers have already woken up to the advantages of this scheme.  No hassle and no bag to worry about.  And gratis too.

Yes you do have to wait at the other end, but airport baggage halls are much improved these days. www.easyjet.com
