Millions of easyJet passengers face higher baggage charges under a new price-by-mile policy.
The budget airline is poised to scrap its £9 flat fee for luggage checked into a plane’s hold and charge by distance instead.
Passengers on short trips may save money but families flying further to destinations such as Crete and Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt will pay more. The changes could be announced in the next month, hitting Brits heading abroad for Easter.
On the plus side, easyJet could allow passengers to take more than one bag in the cabin for free.
