One airline - one route - two standards of service
I find it unacceptable that on a route like MAN-DUB, which I have been flying for decades that a standard cabin bag is ok ....or not ok depending on the luck of the draw. It's good luck when your flight is op by Aer Lingus and bad luck when you find it is not operated by Aer Lingus but by another airline pretending to be Aer Lingus.

The difference is that the cuckoo airline's cabin bag allowance means you will almost always end up paying for an extra bag to go in the hold.

Summary:

Aer Lingus = bring your normal cabin bag, cheaper flight, no queuing to drop the bag, quicker and quieter flight

Stobart = find another miniscule bag to take on board, pack another bag(that you didn't really want to bring anyway) pay more for bringing the bag you didn't want to bring, waste more time at the airport dropping off said bag, a slower flight, a noisier flight at greater overall cost.

Ryanair is a more reliable product than the Stobart lottery.
