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

" I did lack knowledge of European flights however I have now learned to stay away from Easyjet."

Why, easyJet have some of the most generous allowances in Europe so if you use anyone else the likelyhood will be the allowances will be lower

Hi

It doesn't happen so often now because of single queues for multi destinations and because the peoples of North America are more used to our European luggage restrictions, but there was a time that if we saw someone with roughly twice the allocated allowance arguing at check-in about excess charges it was with an American accent.

I have no idea of the rules that Canadian airlines have with regards to luggage, check-in times etc., but if I was flying with them I would make sure I knew what to expect. Ignorance is no defence, and boasting about your ignorance shows just how stup!d a person can be.

Ryanair are extremely generous with their allowances compared to other European airlines.

And as for taxes, give unto Caesar etc.

Maybe next time you go 'low cost' you will have 'lower expectations'.

A little more research before booking saves alot of time moaning afterwards.

Easyjet now need to get their act together. Ryanair have seen the error of their ways and now have allocated seating, priority boarding and best of all, you're allowed to take a small handbag on along with your carry on bag

Time Easyjet abandoned their draconian rules re bags!!!!

"Seasoned traveller" ironically given your chosen user name, your facts are wholly incorrect.

Easyjet introduced allocated seating well before Ryanair, have an unlimited weight allowance for cabin baggage unlike Ryanair, allow one duty free bag just like Ryanair, and a larger sized cabin bag than Ryanair.

Hi Seasonedtraveller

Your posting is factually wrong with absolutely everything, and I mean everything. I won't repeat what Joe says, only ditto.

I was quite impressed with their phone service today, as I'd called with a problem in a booking, and the agent corrected it quickly and efficiently. It was within 24 hours of booking, so different rules applied though.

For someone so 'seasoned' in their travelling, they are so ignorant and clearly more used to long haul flights. I'm sure easyjet would be more than happy to leave the dross to Ryanair aka chav-air! One way ticket next time you go to nz....
