Article from BTNews 17 AUGUST 2015

A real ‘carry on’

The announcement (see  BTN  2 August) that British Airways has changed its rules for ‘carry on’ luggage has really confused travellers.  If you now go one way on a certain carrier but fly back on a competitor you may be faced with different rules!  IATA has muddied the waters even more (see  BTN  22 June).

For easyJet, since February, only ‘easyJet plus’ are officially allowed to take a second bag, such as a handbag or laptop bag, into the cabin on flights.  It is proving to be impossible to police.  The maximum size of the main bag is 56x45x25cms with no weight restriction.

With Ryanair one cabin bag weighing up to 10kg with maximum dimensions of 55cmx40cmx20cms, plus one small bag up to 35x20x20cms may be carried per passenger.

Wizz charges for large cabin baggage but not exceeding 56x45x25cms.  If your cabin baggage is of size 42x32x25cms or smaller it can be taken on board free of charge.  It must fit under the seat in front of you.

Monarch says your bags (could be two) in total must be no more than 10kgs and no bigger than 56x40x25cms. 

All carriers allow extra bags containing Duty Free.

You can't change the size of your bag, at the gate, but you can alter the weight prior to travelling. So let's standardise this mess once and for all.
