Ryanair changes hand luggage rules yet again

Budget airline Ryanair is changing its baggage policy for the second time this year


Now unless you pay at least £6 for priority boarding, you'll only be able to take one handbag-sized carry-on into the cabin on flights from 1 November. 

At the moment, all non-priority customers can bring one small carry-on AND one bigger wheelie bag free of charge, with the larger bag being tagged at the gate and put in the hold at no extra charge. After November, there will be no free gate bags.

The change comes after Ryanair changed its hand-luggage allowance in January this year to create the rule that the larger wheelie-sized bag had to go into the hold.
