For the second time this year Ryainair is changing its cabin-baggage policy. From the 1st of november passengers are only allowed to carry one mid size bag on the plane free of charge. Passengers who want to take a wheelie-trolley up to 10kg on board will have to pay £6 for priority boarding to take the bag on the plane or £8 to check the bag in.
Passengers are currently allowed to check-in 2 bags free of charge, but only can carry both on the plane when paid for priority boarding.
Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said:
“From November 2018, we are introducing a new lower cost 10kg checked bag and changing our carry-on bag policy to eliminate boarding/flight delays. Priority Boarding customers will continue to enjoy two free carry-on bags. All other (non-priority) customers will be allowed one free (small) carry-on bag, and those who wish to check in a second bigger 10kg bag can do from €/£8 at the time of booking.
This new policy will speed up the boarding and cut flight delays. 60% of customers will be unaffected by these changes and we expect that the other 40% will either choose to buy Priority Boarding or a 10kg check bag or will choose to travel with only one (free) small bag as 30% already do so today.”

There will be many new aircraft in the skies over the next few months and years which are under development now. The first to be seen may be the Boeing 737 MAX 8, a fuel efficient single aisle commercial plane, designed to be an affordable way of accessing new destinations. It has just achieved US Federal Aviation Administration certification after four years of intensive testing, and, with over 3,600 orders in place already, is the fastest selling airplane in Boeing history. It won’t be long before it is in use worldwide.
