EasyJet

Easyjet are unlike other airlines, they are extremely tough with both check in and carry baggage. The excess charges for baggage is very expensive, don't think you can sneak a 2nd bag through, you won't.

They consider a small woman's shoulder bag as a carry on, so please don't expect a small handbag and a small carry on to get through, it will cost you a minimum of $50E.

Clearly the ploy here is to offer cheap tickets and charge excessively for baggage- be aware!!

No longer easy jet- it should be called Hard-Jet

If you think Easyjet is bad, you should try Ryanair.

They clearly publish the rules, you ignore them and it's their fault

Still I give you points for being concise and to the point

Yeh, they are so sneaky, they even clearly publish it on their website, making it very clear that one carry on means one carry on. So much so, they even put "ONE" in capitals.

I guess they are just looking to catch out people who are confused by the concept of "ONE"

Why do people complain when the carry on restrictions are clear, everyone ticks the 'read the T & C's' but many obviously don't read them. I think they are a good carrier and would not hesitate to use them. Only complain if you fail to read the terms and conditions if you fail to read the conditions of your ticket.

Yes hard to miss the baggage restrictions at every point of the EZY booking process.

Still top marks for comedy value.

And thank goodness they do enforce their baggage policy. One of the many reasons they are my preferred LCC.

(we all work for them obviously, before you try that one btw).

Gotta agree with the majority here. I used to fly Monarch (ok, ok !) but moved to Easyjet and they have been absolutely brilliant on my last few flights. On time, excellent customer service (i hate flying), and as others have said everything is there to see, the charges, the baggage limits etc - not rocket science.

Also, how do you think they can afford to offer such low fares? Because they make money from people who don't or can't be bothered to read the T's n C's - SIMPLES!!

Best LCC by far IMO !! - oh, and the CC are easy on the eye too ;-)

I usually get regular e-mails reminding me about their baggage policies before a flight.

If you had worn your small shoulder bag underneath a coat you 'may' have sneaked it through.

If your small shoulder bag is in fact a whopper of a handbag then probably not.

However, complying with the ticket conditions that you have purchased is always the best option.

Of course, placing the small shoulder bag _inside_ the carry on bag makes it one carry on, did that option not occur to you?
