Ryanair may have to drop ‘one bag’ rule5 June 2012
Ryanair‘s notorious ‘one bag on board‘ rule could soon be outlawed â€“ because stopping passengers boarding with extra duty free bags is undermining airport retailersâ€™ 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 canâ€™t squeeze everything into a single bag that fits the dimensions of its bag cage, the airline slaps on a â‚¬50 charge to put the extra bag in the hold.
