It seems that it is already official: Ryanair will increase rates for billing sports bags and equipment by up to 50% Since the 1st of october. The cost of online verification will go up from £ 10 to £ 15, and at the airport fees will range from £ 20 to £ 30, for bags. The rate for sports teams will also increase; £ 30 to £ 40 online and £ 50 at the airport.
However, the low-cost airline is also changing its baggage policy to allow passengers to carry up to two 15 kg (33 lb) bags per person. Ryanair has defended their increase in rates, explaining that this way they can continue to have tariffs Very low. These rates will not affect those passengers who simply travel with their hand luggage, as confirmed by the company spokesman. More than 70% of Ryanair passengers will not be harmed since traveling with a single carry-on bag is free.
Ryanair has been doing some proposals that are not being liked by many airline users in general: extra fee for overweight people or payment for seats to travel standing. British Airways and other transatlantic airlines announced that passengers will only be able to carry one bag for free, the additional ones will have a billing price of £ 30, although this amount is not entirely accurate and will vary according to each airline.
conclusion: it costs us much more, to check the luggage than the plane ticket ... we will see that we end up paying.
