Not everyone takes hold luggage though, and for those that don't nothing has changed. Everyone has a choice and if you want to take hold luggage it's just another cost, like prebooking seats, meals etc. that you have to factor in when comparing prices.

I really don't care how much they charge, all I look at is the final price when I have added all the services I want. That's the only way to compare with other carriers.

Not necessarily a reason not to use Ryanair, there are other reasons not to use them!

Travel light and travel cheap, that's what does it for me.

i haven't used hold luggage with Ryanair since they started charging for it, just like the majority of Ryanair's passengers.

It's not such a bargain with Ryanair anymore just did a like for like for 2 people plus car plus luggage on a UK to Europe route I often use and petrol,ferrys etc still works out to be about 60% of the cost of flying(saving £200) plus I don't have to hire a car at the other end-adds about 6 hrs each way but at least I can go and leave when I like

Wouldn't surprise me if O'Leary decides to rip out the bathrooms for more seats and tells people to go before they get on board

"thats well and truly sealed it for me!"

Why? If the final price is attractive what does it matter how big a part of what you're paying are luggage fees?

There is one reason I will never fly Ryanair and I dont suppose I am on my own.

One of the most obnoxious and odious characters I have ever come across.

If they're getting me from Milan (ish) to Krakow for 30 euros, they can be as obnoxious and odious as they want. When I pay for first class service I expect to receive it. When I pay the equivalent of bus fare, I expect only to get from point A to point B.

Ryanair really must be the worst airline for add ons etc to expect folk to travel without hold luggage unless on a short trip is i think very unfair.just one reason why i never use this company.

Lots of people can pack light, even for 2 weeks, and people flying for business etc often don't check luggage. If it keeps prices down for those that don't take a lot, it can only be a good thing. For those that don't pack light there are other airlines to choose from.

I for one was delighted with this news as it will keep my hand luggage fare low low low. Just booked a lovely fare to Greece for September today, half the price of the other airlines.
