Packing for Ryanair and easyJet
Ryanair only allows small bags and just 10kg in weight and though easy adidas hamburg Jet is more generous, to guarantee your bag can be allowed in the cabin with you, you have to abide by even stricter dimensions than Ryanair.
easyJet has tackled the increasing issue of overcrowded overhead lockers by offering a guaranteed baggage allowance of 50cm x 40cm x 20cm which will never be taken off you and put in the hold in the case of a crowded plane. This means you can be assured that will be able to walk off the plane and out of the airport without waiting for your bags.
If your bag is their standard size of 56cm x adidas hamburg 45cm x 25cm, they may have to put your luggage in the hold to make space in the cabin, a common practice on today’s budget airlines. easyJet is the only airline that guarantees your hand luggage can be taken with you, as long as you fulfil their smaller criteria.
But no matter what size bag you chose to take on an easyJet flight, at least you’ll have unlimited weight. With Ryanair, on the other hand, you are limited to 10kg and dimensions of 55cm x 40cm x 20cm. (Ryanair does not guarantee your bag can be kept with you in cabin they may need to put it in the hold whatever the size of your bag.)
