Hi everyone, I have a couple questions about flying with Ryanair.
This will be my first time with the airline, and my first time flying into a low-budget airport.
First, did Ryanair change their baggage allowance to allow two bags? Their website says they allow "One cabin bag per passenger* weighing up to 10kg with maximum dimensions of 55cm x 40cm x 20cm, plus 1 small bag up to 35 x 20 x 20 cms." So does that mean two bags? One cabin bag and a purse or small camera bag?
I'm trying to decide what to do baggage wise. I'm thinking of just brining a backpack on this two week trip to Europe (Spain and Italy) but also want to bring a purse or camera bag with me to store my DSLR. So I'm wondering if I should just check the backpack and carry on the purse if two bags are not allowed? I don't really want to risk stuffing my DSLR into my backpack.
Second, if I did check the bag, how does baggage claim work? Is it just a normal luggage carousel? Sorry if this is a stupid question, I just want to be sure.
I'm flying into Pisa (PSA) from Madrid if this helps any.
Finally, is 2hr30min early enough to show up for the flight? I've heard some horror stories about Ryanair check in. Should we print boarding passes off before we leave the states (won't have a printer available in Europe, but I'm not sure if we can even check in that early?) or find our way to the Ryanair desk at the airport?
(Do the same general rules apply for easyjet?)
Thanks so much, I appreciate it!
