according to easyjet - that is not exactly the case.

if you wish to take a bag of the old dimensions, you can. but it MIGHT be gate checked. to guarantee it stays with you, it needs to be the new size.

Already covered, but trust the Daily Mail to get it wrong. Never let the facts stand in the way of a good story.

Did they get ANY part of the article right?

They aren't reducing the size of bags, they are reducing the size of bags GUARANTEED to travel in the cabin, "normal" bags may travel if there's enough space. There's no charge if easyJet decide to check your hand luggage. All the charges mentioned are for hand luggage bigger than the maximum size allowed - which are the charges they make currently

Hi

This is incredible, the Daily Mail publishing a completely inaccurate article. Who would have thought it! I mean that newspaper is known for its factual content.

Well, it sounds like you believed it!

You said "The luggage is going to have a smaller size limit from July" without checking the facts.

How is the Daily Mail story "completely inaccurate"? It seems to report the easyJet announcement quite faithfully...

EasyJet has announced a 'guaranteed' cabin baggage allowance which is 37 per cent below the maximum size allowed - because its packed planes can't always fit passengers' luggage on-board.

At present, the budget airline allows luggage to be taken into the cabin if it’s below the maximum size of 56cm by 45cm by 25cm – a total of 63 litres per bag.

And from July 2, it is cutting the dimensions for baggage that is guaranteed for the cabin down to 50cm by 40cm by 20cm – including handles, pockets and wheels – to a total of just 40 litres.

and paying to have to check in anything bigger than 50 x 40 x 20?? which is what most people will pick up on, and which isn't true.

< How is the Daily Mail story "completely inaccurate"? It seems to report the easyJet announcement quite faithfully... >

Let me count the ways...

1) In the ORIGINAL version of the article it said the maximum size was 50x40x20cm

2) In the ORIGINAL version of the article it said there was a charge for having a bag checked - it's still in the article and it's still wrong

Just read the older comments (the one's before they "corrected" the article at 20:39)
