Hi we had a communication recently from easyjet advising that they had reduced their hand luggage size rules to guarantee that your hand luggage travels with you in the cabin. Apparently if your luggage is above their new reduced size but within the standard hand luggage allowance size, you maye be asked to stow your luggage in the hold, to ensure that everyone has a fair chance to fit their hand luggage in the overhead lockers on each flight when it's a full and busy flight.
My question is, there are 7 of us travelling but will only be taking 3 hand luggages between us, they are within the standard size allowances but are larger than the new reduced sizes that easyjet say would guarantee it flies with you in the cabin and not have to be put in the hold. As we only have 3 hand luggages between 7 of us, surely this would mean that we would be allowed to take them in cabin, rather than in the hold, as we will only be taking 3 not the full 7 allowed???? Any advice please or does anyone already know the answer to this? :-)Edited: 6:16 pm, June 09, 2013
