Ryanair may have to drop ‘one bag’ rule

5 June 2012

Ryanair‘s notorious ”one bag on board” rule could soon be outlawed – because stopping passengers boarding with extra duty free bags is undermining airport retailers’ business.

The European Parliament has voted in favour of legislation that would forbid airlines from insisting all purchases fit in a single carry-on bag.

The proposal now moves to the European Commission, which is to overhaul air passenger rights later this year.

Ryanair currently operates a system whereby if a passenger can’t squeeze everything into a single bag that fits the dimensions of its bag cage, the airline slaps on a €50 charge to put the extra bag in the hold.
